This whopping 16-bit computer processor is being built by hand, transistor by transistor

Even though I am a geek I oficially don't get why anyone would spend so much time/money/space doing this as you can just go out and buy a functionally much better CPU for pennies that would fit easily into a matchbox.

Heck if he just wanted to see his processor design implemented he could/should have just programmed it into a PLD or something.
