Parallax has made it possible for me to continue work more rapidly on the 3D computer by supplying parts for expanding the number of spacial computers. You will remember this project was conceived with just two computers and a hardware interface. The interface design is now purely optical and lensing in nature, and "n" dimensional, and is leading to the addition of numerous computers located in n-space.
N-space makes it possible for all computers to simultaneously contribute to the core as light paths can become infinitely dense. The population density goes to infinity as the optical dimension increases. Over the last 2 years, the phase of the project was primarily mathematical, with work continuing to perfect the ultimate matrix equation.
I recently assembled two more computers and have these working and tested. The primary reason for developing the optical n-dimensional 3D computer is for use as a humanoid brain. (Current networked computers are far too slow for use as advanced robot brains.) I wish to give my personal thanks to Parallax company and Ken Gracey for their support and interest in this project. Their basic stamp computer is ideal for a number of robotic projects. Their web site is at http://www.parallaxinc.com/
