It is even more straightforward to create XOR if you don't mind using two relays . Many modern demonstration relay computers bite the bullet and use semiconductors for memory and control circuits. Practical This isn't just in the realm of theory. Many relay computing devices were built in the last century. There are several modern examples, too, although they are mostly for show, not practical devices. There is a good looking 8-bit computer , for example, that only uses 83 relays. Watch it go in the attached video. In all fairness, though, it does use semiconductors for memory and the front panel. However, the architecture write up is quite illuminating, even if you don't want to build the computer yourself. You can see a video of it in action below. [Paul] has a project over on Hackaday.io that refuses to use diodes for logic and has a whopping 32-bits of memory.
