In 1936, Alan Turing imagined an abstract model to define what used to be an intuitive notion: the calculability. This model is today known as the Turing machine and is still used in theorical computer science to solve calculability problems.
At the occasion of Alan Turing's centenary, Masters students in fundamental computer sciences of the "Ecole Normale Supérieure", located in Lyon (France), pay homage to him through the building of a Turing machine in Lego.
A film by Christophe Gombert and Hugo Deboise. Production : CNRS Images

Je n’aime pas trop l’utilisation de certaines expressions comme «la machine décide de…» (ce n’est pas la machine qui décide) ou «sans composant intelligent» (même dans un *smart*phone, il n’y a pas de composant intelligent). Mais sinon bon boulot !

Good job, but how does the machine actually work ? It would be awesome to follow what the machine is doing after it read the input.
