Tim Robinson has built a computer capable of solving polynomial
equations -- using Meccano. His difference engine (mirror) uses a
similar approach to Babbage's design. He's also created a differential
analyzer (mirror) complete with a GUI. Both could be scaled up
indefinitely to handle larger problems. 'Computing by steam' is
possible."
