Electrical logic machine by Dietrich Prinz and Wolfe Mays

Electrical logic machine by Dietrich Prinz and Wolfe Mays

This machine was made in Manchester by physicist Dietrich Prinz, one of Alan Turing's protégés, and Wolfe Mays, a 36-year-old philosophy lecturer.

It is an electrical device for testing logical propositions, built mostly from RAF spare parts left over from the Second World War, and was unique in Britain at the time.
