This is the Setun computer

It was developed in 1958 at Moscow State University

It used ternary logic with a balanced ternary numeral system (which is to say, -1, 0, 1)

basically: NON BINARY COMPUTER FOR NONBINARY DAY! :flag_nonbinary:

@troubleMoney I've heard trinary logic can do the same stuff with a lower component count, is that true?

@shapr I don't know for sure but I've heard things to that effect

@troubleMoney This is so interesting, but the real question is : Can this thing run #Doom ? 🤔
