Numbers by painting.

The Doors of perception website has posted a transcript of Neil Gershenfeld’s presentation on the work of MIT’s centre for Bits and Atoms.

“a paintable computer, a viscous medium with tiny silicon fragments that makes a pour-out computer, and if it’s not fast enough or doesn’t store enough, you put another few pounds or paint out another few square inches of computing.”

  1. Random thoughts:

    Clay might work better from the standpoint of building up layers. You can also use it before it’s dry.

    Stucco sounds like a good compromise.

    Also consider mixing in photoelectrics and painting/siding the outside of something.
