Shaheer worked on making a mechanical random number generator. An electromagnet drops a ball onto a rod that is exactly beneath it, and the ball will fall onto either the right or the left side of this rod. If the balls falls onto the left side, a reading of ‘1’ is taken. And if it falls onto the right side, a reading of ‘0’ is taken. After dropping the ball like this many times, a stream of ‘random‘ numbers is obtained.
