Reverie is a true mini-computer. This computer runs a thirty-two line program, where each line contains one of thirty-two possible values, indicated by a pink rectangle positioned horizontally. When a line is selected, it moves to the top of the computer and waits for the rotary sweeper to trace its value along an arc. The line positioned at the bottom of the arc, becomes the next selected line, and the process repeats.
