Manufactoria!

Manufactoria is to Конструктор as your Theory of Computation class was to your Digital Logic class. Instead of creating tricky silicon circuits to implement various logical operations, you create tricky state machines to modify and accept or reject sequences of colored dots on a paper tape. And just like Конструктор it goes from super trivial (accept every tape, unchanged) to super insane (reds are ones, blues are zeroes, the input tape represents a number, create an output tape with that number plus one).

I’m hoping that in the last level I have to create a state machine that accepts a paper tape with a PROGRAM ON IT and then EXECUTES IT.
