A simple demo of two Illuminato X Machina boards in action, illustrating each cell's ability to update and synchronize programming autonomously.

The Illuminato X Machina uses a novel organization of the traditional von Neumann computer, called robust physical computing. Rather than subdividing the system into its functional components, robust physical computing breaks the system down into a network of mini-computer units. These units, or 'cells' can combine to form a modular, scalable computer capable of adapting its performance to the task at hand.
