It has been awhile since I’ve succumbed to my Kickstarter addiction, but felt the need to place a pledge last night for “Turing Tumble: Gaming on a Mechanical Computer.” The good news is that the project has already far surpassed its funding goal, and there are still 27 days to go in the campaign. The bad news is that the projected date I will receive it is not until January of next year. Turing Tumble looks like it will be a great addition to my classroom. Because marbles!!!! And logic puzzles in a comic book!!!! And learning the basics of how computers work!!!
If I haven’t convinced you yet, check out their Kickstarter page, which gives a very thorough explanation (better than mine) and video of the Turing Tumble in action.
