Making your own 4 bit computer from transistors
Uploaded on Jan 30, 2010

This video explains the theory behind how computers count and shows, in simple steps, how you can build your own 4-bit computer using logic gates which are made of individual transistors. The final result is a 4-bit adding computer which is capable of adding together two numbers and showing the result.

If you've ever been curious about how computers really work, or you're interested in logic circuits, this video is for you.

Personal Note Added:

This works for those who want to use their own processor.
Operating system not included.

I used to have about 2 or 3 other videos on this, with more details and a list of CPUs examples built in the USA, but I could not find them again yet.

My gmail searches are still without satisfactory results yet.

I believe the systems that were built were powerful enough to run word processors on, although I forgot or cannot verify at this time.

How can I build a microprocessor from scratch?
