SAGE console. The thing on the console that looks like an air wrench is the first light pen.
High-density core memory - 32KW.
Magnetic drum storage. The score lines are physical damage from misaligned heads.
The wiring inside a Cray-1. Maintainable!
Connection Machine. This is probably one of the best-looking computers ever, as well as being technically impressive.
Kitchen Computer. It's basically a large counter with a built-in computer that you could train the little wife to use. For what, I don't know - this is the toggle-switch-and-LED kind of computer. Not a single unit was ever sold.
I've had one of those horrible little keyboards in my scrap pile for ages and didn't realize until now that it's from a PET.
More robots. I always coveted the Heathkit robot and the OmniBot, but they were too expensive. I didn't realize how large the Heathkit one was.
Teapotahedron in the atoms!
VT100 - the primal, exemplary dumb terminal.
Replica of the Brown Box, the prototype of the Odyssey 1 video game (the white thing on the right).
Atari 2600 prototype hardware!
"What's your game, Ito?"
VIC-20, my first computer.
Control panel of an IMP - first-generation Internet hardware. The full unit is larger than a fridge.
