We have studied the dynamics of a totally interconnected network of nonlinear amplifiers by building model electronic circuits using dense arrays of resistors and discrete amplifiers. Such models have been discussed recently in the context of spin glasses and neural networks. Even without optimization for speed, these circuits easily reproduce and extend the results of computer simulations in considerably less time.
