The 1978 Sinclair Enterprise Programmable Calculator. This donation is in mint condition and will be stored by The National Museum of Computing as a heritage item. It’s fully working and I was able to input a simple program to calculate the circumference of a circle using Pi (last photo).
Spotted at TNMoC yesterday, these are punch-cards for an ICL mainframe. Yes, they indexed them by writing on the top. EDIT: Turns out these are for an IBM7090 but TNMoC are using an ICL reader to archive them.
Just a few things to test then? #zx81
#tnmoc’s Peter Onion shows us how fast an ICL Card Reader can go. Imagine the paper cuts. *shudders*
Yup. A fully working Apple Lisa with HDD (that’s the massive thing on top of the monitor).
Ah, the Jupiter Ace. Developed in a moment of madness by ex-Sinclair staff in 1983, this little beauty used FORTH instead of the much-more common (and easier) BASIC. The result? Strictly geeks only.
