analog io

I’ve assumed that future versions of io would have a single board computer (or multiple SBCs) in place of the clunky and fragile personal computer. There was, however, always an alternative.

Take the not-so-humble analog computer, a technology with a fascinating past and a (still promising) future. Given that io’s behavior is driven by an N-body simulation, it’s not difficult to imagine an analog port.

Wait, isn’t this sounding a lot like BEAM…?
