MATTEL ELECTRONICS  Keyboard Component
Sometime before the failed Aquarius home computer scheme was hatched by Mattel, the Intellivision team had attempted to expand Intellivision into the growing home computer market by turning it into a full fledged computer dubbed as the "Intellivision Keyboard Component", much in the same way Coleco was soon to do with their Adam computer. The unit featured a built-in cassette tape drive for loading and saving data. The Keyboard Component would plug into the cartridge slot on the Intellivision...
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...

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...

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...

WICAT  150
Wicat stands for World Institute for Computer Aided Training. The Wicat is one of the first (perhaps even the first) computer to use a Motorola MC68000 processor. It is a card-based computer. The mainboard just houses the processor, the boot PROMs, a very fast cache memory and the glue electronics. A lot of cards were developed for this computer. Each card has its own CPU: The I/O board called ICI board uses its own 68008 (68000 with 8 bit data bus), the FD & HD controller, as the streame...
TALENT/TELEMATICA  TPC-310

The TPC-310 featured a "toolbox" in ROM (user could access it pressing CTRL-Shift keys) including a calculator...
SEGA Master System II
In 1990 Sega regained the U.S. rights to the Master System which they had sold early in the console's life to toy manufacturer Tonka. In an attempt to improve sales a smaller version of the Master System was launched. To cut production costs Sega removed the card slot which meant users could not play Sega Card games or use the 3D glasses. Also removed was the A/V output and the reset button, along with the Expansion port. Despite the Master System II now ...

MULTITECH  MPF-1 A/B
The MPF-1 (MicroProFessor 1) was a computer system specifically designed by Multitech (now known as Acer!) as a learning tool for use in the teaching of microprocessor, microelectronics, and control technology. In the 80's it was sold as an Z80 CPU learning and initiation system, and believe it or not, it is still in production and sold by www.flite.co.uk !! at the time this article is written. The capacities of the system were quite poor. The standard model could be programmed only in machin...
CASIO  PV-16
This MSX system has only 16 KB and one cartridge slot. It is basicaly a Casio PV-7 with 16 KB RAM. Hopefully an expansion unit (KB-7) was available and added two catridge slots and more memory (8 + 16 = 24 KB) to the PV-16. The chicklet keyboard is very poor and to small to do anything with it. There are big arrow keys on the right hand side of the keyboard arranged in circle. The whole pad is called "Joypad 1" and emulates a joystick inserted in port #1. T...
IASIS ia-7301
The IASIS ia-7301, also called 'Computer in a Book' is a training computer, based on the Intel 8080 microprocessor. It was delivered with a 250 pages programming course (contained in a 3-ring binder), but without any power supply. User had to buy it as an option ! Basic version offered 1 Kb of ROM holding the monitor, 1 Kb of RAM and two I/O ports. Programs were saved through a standard tape recorder. An optional expander board allowed to add standard cards (S100 bus ?) to increase memory siz...

It was the successor to the IBM PCjr, although it was compatible with IBM's bussines systems. The PS/1 was a propriatary system at first, but standard components were used later on. The later models included "Rapid Resume" a standby feature. The system uses a LPX form factor (layout). Everything was built into the motherboard and had a four expansion slots of 16bit ISA b...
EPOCH Cassette Vision
The Cassette Vision is a japanese console released on the 30th June, 1981 by Epoch Co. This is for sure an obscure system as little is known about this console. It was one of the first cartridge system released in japan and ha d almost no real competitor until the launch of the fabulous Nintendo Famicom in 1983. It was however clearly a low-end and cheap system. The graphics are very basic and blocky. The overall aspect of the games and cartridges (size and plastic boxes), is strangely...
NEC  PC Engine Duo
The launch of the PC Engine Duo in 1991 marked the beginning of a new era in the console world. Containing a PC Engine and a Super CD-ROM▓ unit which were unified in a single case, along with the Super System Card integrated on the motherboard, it was the first stand alone console able to play CD-ROM games.
