Pretty cool! Check out the whole thing at the Internet Archive.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

  1. Wang provided a bunch of these to our high school…the inner city kids ripped the crap out of them, Stole Nixie tubes and key caps.

    These pictures don’t show the huge RTL electronics package that went under the desk for these “desktop” calculators. (note it’s described as a “keyboard”) They did keep you warm in winter, though.

  2. Everybody have fun tonight. Everybody Wang Labs tonight…

    I fondly remember the Wang’s I used to program functions and stats for a project at Berkeley in the late 1960’s. They were very hot.

  4. The original source for this was BitSavers , a pretty amazing archive of both software and documentation for vintage computer systems. If you find yourself trying to repair a PDP-8 or a MegaTek terminal, they’re the place to look. I think(?) they’re affiliated with the Computer History Museum.
