The Thinking Machine is a ternary computer that outputs melodies formed by three sounds as a result of the calculations. Whether binary of ternary, it is certainly a computer in Alan Turing's sense, although in this case the algorithmic mechanism is fixed so it is not a unversal Turing machine. However, like all computers - the Thinking Machine is a logical machine with input and output that can process and store code, and is an actual object that expresses discrete time within real time.
