3D Printed Mini IMSAI 8080 #3DThursday #3DPrinting

RabbitEngineering shared this epic print on Thingiverse!

Remember the 1983 movie Wargames? Seattle teenage hacker David Lightman (played by Matthew Broderick) was trying to impress attractive classmate Jennifer Mack (played by Ally Sheedy), and they accidentally hack into a NORAD missile base and almost start World War 3. A classic rom-com romp.

Well, as we all know the real star of that movie was David’s impressive IMSAI based desktop system – 8080 computer with FDC-2 disk drives and the 212A modem and keyboard, all running on a Electrohome 17″ monitor – with speech synthesis no less. My first movie crush.

Relive those nostalgic moments of young love/global thermonuclear war with this mini machine set! Mini 3D models of Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy sadly not included.

Every Thursday is #3dthursday here at Adafruit! The DIY 3D printing community has passion and dedication for making solid objects from digital models. Recently, we have noticed electronics projects integrated with 3D printed enclosures, brackets, and sculptures, so each Thursday we celebrate and highlight these bold pioneers!

Have you considered building a 3D project around an Arduino or other microcontroller? How about printing a bracket to mount your Raspberry Pi to the back of your HD monitor? And don’t forget the countless LED projects that are possible when you are modeling your projects in 3D!
