I'm not the first person to come up with the idea of an executable, drawn-circuit!

  • Mentioned above, ashirviskas made a Rust implementation too!
  • Various cellular automata are Turing complete and can be used to build a processor.
    • Conway's Game of Life -- A Turing-complete zero-player-game. By far the most popular cellular automata. Rest in Peace John Conway.
    • Wireworld -- Another cellular automata in which it is easy to implement logic circuits.
    • Brian's Brain -- A cellular automaton similar to the previous.
  • Bitmap Logic Simulator -- I'm not sure how this works, but check it out! It's a similar idea.
  • Turing Paint and Doodle Code, which have a similar idea of "doodle-able logic circuits".
  • Wired Logic, similar to wire-world, simulating circuits in an image.
  • Lots of games:
    • Minecraft especially for redstone, an in-game resource that lets you build circuits.
    • Zacktronics, known for games which focus heavily on computation.
    • Hempuli is one of my favorite game devs, and seeing their development on Baba Is You kept my brain on the right track for this.
    • This in-browser videogame that has you build circuits and solve problems.

Reso was influenced by redstone, esolangs, and Python. The goal was to make digital logic circuits that could be built by anybody who can use MS Paint.
