“Wood” computers

Applei

Mosaic By Makergear Large

Back in the day some of the first personal computers had wood cases, and now the first personal 3D printers have laser cut wood cases. So thank you, wood, for always helping out and getting us started 🙂


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  1. I went to school with a newly built processor technology sol (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Processor_Technology) and a 300 baud modem I bought at a swap meet that came in a wooden case (that looked pretty much like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9dpXHnJXaE)

    The computer had polished walnut ends. The modem was an acoustic coupler that discreetly held the phone handset inside the closed case… suitable for executive suites and clueless 17 year-old’s dorm rooms alike.

    The world could use a little more finish and beauty.

  2. It’s better than bad, it’s good!

  3. Its better than good, its wood.

    Your the Ren to my Stimpy.

  4. Ahh yes wood computers. I too had a Processor Tech SOL back in the day. It followed me across the country through a dozen moves. When I was preparing for my move to Maui, I could not justify bringing it with me. So it, along with full documentation (paper), and programs on audio cassettes, were donated to Crashspace in LA. I believe it still hides out in a closet there.
