In our devices we’re using a different process but with the exact same objective.

Still in the analog phase we have straight conductor tracks that are long enough to align the flow of electrons. These aligned electrons, when going into the AD, yield the biggest amount of symmetric bits.

Coriolis effect and gravitational influences must be taken into account so we instruct the users to correctly position the MOD devices, always aligning the inputs and outputs with the Earth’s  North/South axis.

Those positioned in the south hemisphere should not forget to invert this alignment in order to avoid the formation of undecided bits.
