RCA Fred 2
This Fred 2 computer is a prototype designed by Joseph Weisbecker, engineer at RCA. He already imagined several early computer designs before this Fred 2 model, such as the System 00 or the original Fred concept. Fred is rather a concept imagined by Joseph Weisbecker for educational computer able to play games. This concept emerged in several hardware versions through time. The first models could be dates as early as 1970 or 1971 ! Unlike the System 00 which used only small-scale digital T...

BANDAI TV Jack 5000
The TV Jack 5000 from Bandai released in 1978 is one of the first cartridge based system from Japan. It's the equivalent of european and american systems like the Hanimex SD-050, Acetronic Color TV Game, Prinztronic Micro 5500, SHG Blackpoint, Binatone Cablestar, Radofin telesports, etc. There have been tons of systems like these. The TV Jack 5000, like all these systems, use cartridges based on General Instruments chipsets which offers different games on each chip. That's why all these sy...
OLIVETTI  A5
Olivetti introduced a mainframe about 1960 which was called ELEA, then in 1965 the Programma 101 - which was probably the world's first real desktop computer. Then a little later they introduced the Audiotronic range of "office computers". The first was the A770, which was replaced by the A7. The A5 was the desktop version. The Olivetti Audit 5 or A5 was largely an electro mechanical computer. It printed via a golf ball typewritter mechanism at the astonishing speed of 16 character per second...
TRIUMPH ADLER  TA-1600
The TA 1600 system was introduced in 1983 at the CeBIT (which was only a part of the "Hannover-Messe" by that time). TA showed a few sample applications and the 1600 family in general. Triumph Adler's hardware included also the 1600/20-3 which was supplied with a permanent-swap-HDD-unit. This unit had a memory/storage capacity of 2 x 8 MB (Winchester technology). Triumph Adler said the system (the 1600) will fit the demand of medium-sized businesses, due to the facts that these companies w...
MIDWICH Microcontroller
Called the Midwich Microcontroller, this British computer was developped to provide a small desktop micro capable of running other equipment throug a variety of interface cards. In 1979 an Italian IC manufacturer designed and began to sell a single board micro system that could be expanded to a full system with a VDU, discs, etc. Called the Nanocomputer, it was manufactured by SGS Ates and one of the distributors in the UK was Midwich. The Nano was somewhat expensive and suffered from a numbe...
RADIONIC Model R1001

BASF 7100
The BASF 7000 systems are professional computers from Germany. They seem to be based on the Microterm II Intelligent Terminal by Digi-Log Systems, Inc. There were several models in the 7000 serie....
PERTEC PCC 2000
PCC 2000 is a professional computer released in 1978. It was designed in 1978 by Pertec, the company which merged with MITS by the end of 1976. The PCC is conceived as a monobloc machine, where the display and two 8" floppy disk drives are built-in the main case. The mechanical keyboard offers separated numeric and editing keypads. The system is powered by an Intel 8085 microprocessor and offers 64 KB RAM. The whole thing was apparently delivered with an extended Basic language, which has...

CZERWENY CZ-1000
TADEO CZERWENY "CZ" is a an electromechanical company, which was founded by Tadeo Czerweny in September 1958. It is located in Parana, Entre Rios province, in Argentina. The company made transformers, electric motors, etc. In the 80´s Czerweny marketed the Timex Sinclair´s models, under its own name. The CZ-1000 is thus a rebadged Timex Sinclair 1000, which is itself a Sinclair ZX-81 with 2 KB RAM. In Argentina Czerweny mod...
CONTINENTAL EDISON / SABA Ordinateur Video Jeu JO 1450 (JOPAC)
The Jopac JO 1450 is the same system as Brandt Electronique Ordinateur de Jeu JO7400, basically a Philips G7400 in a different case....
SONY  SMC 70
The SMC 70 was, like its successor, the SMC 70G designed for professional video applications. It was the first computer in the world to use 3.5" floppy disk, created a little earlier by Sony. The graphic and character display screens are controlled separately, the screen can be changed instantly from character to graphics, and so forth. There are four display surfaces in the 160 x 100 mode. Fun fact: This computer was briefly seen being used by the alien-hu...
INTERTEC  HEADSTART
Thanks to Michael Hoyle for this information: The HeadStart had two models. HeadStart VPU and HeadStart ATS. The VPU was an impressive machine. It was a portable or a desktop machine. Notice the picture has a smaller keyboard that snapped on the front bezel and a handle on the back. No customers ordered the portable version. The VPU had a Z-80 and an 8086 and could support up to 1MB RAM. Inside the computer consisted of three circuit boards. Two (over the top of ...
COMMODORE  CDTV
The Commodore Amiga CDTV is, in a way, the ancestor of the Amiga CD32 game console. Basically, it is an Amiga 500 with a CDROM drive. It was sold without keyboard or mouse, but it was possible to connect them to the CDTV. A 3.5" floppy disk drive (800 KB), was developed for this computer. It was designed to be a home entertainment device, but it was too expensive and only very little software was developed for this machine (Psygnosis made almost all the s...
PANASONIC FS A1 GT
This system is a MSX Turbo R. It is one of the last MSX computer ever made. It is the successor of the MSX 2+ systems and thus has many characteristics in common. New features include a new PCM sound chip which can sample sound up to 15 KHz and replay up to 22 kHz. There is an internal microphone for the PCM unit. There is also an additional CPU, the R800 wich is a 16-bit RISC processor. The user can select the CPU (Z80 or R800) b...
PSION Series 3
In 1991, Psion launched their first clamshell format organiser, the Series 3. It featured a NEC V30H 8086-compatible processor running at 3.84MHz. The machine featured 128K or 256K of RAM, and into its 384K ROM Psion fit their EPOC operating system (as used in the MC 200 & 400 models, upgraded with new features), several good office/PDA applications and the OPL programming language. In 1993 the Series 3a was launched. Despite the insignificant change in version number, this was a maj...
PROLOGICA CP-400
The CP-400 from brazilian company Prologica is a Tandy Color Computer clone. It was completely compatible with Color Computer 2. Prologica was indeed specialised in cloning of popular micro-computers. CP stands for Computer Personal. Released in 1984, the CP-400 shows an original plastic case, very similar to the Timex-Sinclair 2068! The calculator type keyboard uses a membrane for contacts. Ther...
T.R.Q. (TALLERES RADIOELÉCTRICOS QUEROL) H-21 Video Computer
Few information is known about this obscure system... It is software compatible with the Interton VC-4000 and "clones". This doesn't mean that it can use the Interton cartridges, as they certainly won't fit, but the internal specs and software are the same. The CPU is the 2650A from Signetics and the Video Controller is the 2636 from Signetics as well. About 40 cartridges has been released for the Interton VC-4000, but we can't tell how many were availabl...
NEC  PC 8001 MK 2 SR
The PC-8001 MKII SR was the last one of PC-8001 Series. In 1985, PC-8801 series took the place of the PC-8001 series along with a large amount of available software, so this computer didn't meet a large success. This machine displayed not only Katakana but also Hiragana characters, a Kanji-ROM was available as optional extra.

MARQUETTE ELECTRONICS 8000 Holter System
The system was developed at the Biomedical Engineering Group at MIT using a database of 50 annotated Holter tape recordings. The data base consisted of the 100-series (basic EKG structures) and the 200-series (complex arrhythmia and beat morphology) classification challenges. The 30 minute recordings were annotated beat-by-beat by the consensus of five cardiologists. The development of the data base was lead by Roger Mark, M.D., Ph.D.
The hardware design and first software versions constituted Paul Schluter''s Ph.D. work at MIT. He later joined Marquette and led a team of developers for the commercial implementation of the system.
The first high performance software processing for this system, using cluster analysis and projection methods, was developed by Wolfram Jarisch, then at the BME group of MIT. He demonstrated its performance February 10, 1984.
Using tools from systems analysis the innovative approach could exceed human expert interpretation. Clarification and verification of its performance in terms of human vs. machine capabilities required careful EKG re-examination for final characterization. The development and software implementation of the new analysis approach (in C on a PDP-11) was accomplished in (only) three weeks.
