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
This is an extremly rare TRS-80 Model 1 clone, based on an other clone: The Komtek 1 (from Germany). It's equiped with a Level II basic and powered by a Zilog Z80 cpu. _________ Contributors : Incog...
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...

VIDEOMASTER Star Chess
What a weird system we have here! This must be one of the rarest and most original consoles ever produced. It only plays one game: Star Chess, a version of chess which takes place in space, for two players. The system itself looks like a box with a transparent plastic cover, revealing four silver controllers stored into the plastic case. Actually, only two of the silver oblongs are real controllers, attached by extendable wires to the console for 2 players. Another silver oblong opens out in...
BANDAI WonderSwan
The WonderSwan was developed by Yokoi Gunpei (known as the father of the Nintendo Game Boy). A low price point and extremely low battery consumption is considered to be the original vision of Yokoi. Sadly, Yokoi died in a car accident before seeing a completed WonderSwan. Most of the games for the WonderSwan were based on Japanese Anime series. The system had no success outside of the Japanese domestic market, mainly beacause it was not ditributed and marketed efficiently. One of the system'...
MAGNAVOX Odyssey
The Magnavox Odyssey was the first home video game system, invented by Ralph Baer, who started work on it as early as 1967. It was then launched in 1972 at the end of which over 100,000 units were sold. This system is very basic, having no CPU, score mechanism, colour or sound. In fact there were only 40 diodes and 40 transistors inside. Six cartridges could be used to play up to 12 games - sometimes the same cartridges being used more than once to play different games. The large number of ga...
FUJI ELECTRIC Sportstron TV-Game (Coca-Cola edition)
This is a rare and funny japanese pong. Its hardware is quite classic with a AY-3-8500 chipset only offering 3 games, whereas this chip can play 6 games. But hey, this is marketing! The main feature about this system is that it is a Coca-Cola edition. The two dials built-in the system are coke cap shaped! Excellent. There are also switches to control difficulty settings (paddle size, ball speed, etc.), a power switch and a serve button....
COMMODORE  AMIGA 4000
In 1992 Commodore launched the most advanced Amiga yet. The A4000 used the AGA chipset to allow it to show 256,000 colours on screen from a palette of 16.8 million, as well as the new Workbench 3 that introduced the concept of among other things, datatypes. The Amiga 4000 is one of the most powerful Amigas ever made. As a replacement for the A3000 & A3000T, the A4000 was a combination of the A2000 (big box), A3000 (vertical slots (integrated hard drive controller) and A1200 (AGA chips). As s...
ROBERTS Rally IV
A classic pong from Roberts with four games (hence the name of the system) and detachables paddles. Made in Japan. The difference between the Rally IV and Paddle IV are unclear. Can anyone help ? Both systems seem identical despite a different cosmetic design : same chipset, same games, same controls, switches and buttons, etc... The console is plastic with nice woodgrain accents. A knob allows you to select from the four games. There are two buttons, one...
BRANDT ELECTRONIQUE Ordinateur de Jeu JO7400 (JOPAC)
The Jopac JO7400 is a french version of the Philips G7400 produced and marketed by Brandt Electronique. Work in progress......
APPLE  APPLE IIgs
The Apple IIGS was designed in response to the Amiga 1000 and Atari 520ST computers & could be considered a cross between the Macintosh & Apple II (naturally, it can't use Macintosh programs). It was (and still is) a quantum leap for the Apple II line. Sales were strong initially and the IIGS even outsold the black and white Macintosh units that were its contemporar...
KEMITRON Naja
This is a brasilian Tandy TRS-80 Model III compatible system. It didn't sell well as the CP-500 was a too popular TRS-80 compatible system in Brazil. In 1985, a new model named Naja 800 was marketed. It had a 14 Kb EPROM, 128 Kb RAM, built-in monitor, 70 keys keyboard with numeric keypad and a hard-disk. Sources : Computadores Brasileiros
MOS TECHNOLOGY  KIM 1
This prehistoric computer has no "real" keyboard and no video output, program are entered by the small hexadecimal keyboard (located in the lower right part of the picture) and results are displayed on the small LED "screen" (it can display only 6 digits). It has a simple monitor that allows one to examine & modify memory, load and save paper tape, load and save cassette tape, run and debug programs through a 'single step' mode. The monitor works with the built in keypad and LEDs, or a terminal ...

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.
