  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.
