‘FlyLab on the NeXTstation’ – with App Tarball #RetroComputing

Blake Patterson has a still-operating – and using! – NeXTstation and for a recent Back to School Week event online he photographed his machine running FlyLab, a program circa the early 1990s, still running, that actually still seems quite sophisticated (and cool!). Blake has also recently tarball’d the app for other NeXTstation owners, available on his blog.

FlyLab on the NeXTstation

It is a genetics application that visually conveys inheritance through mating pairs of flies with configurable traits, sort of a fly construction set. The app really stood out for me because it is an ideal demonstration of what NEXTSTEP could bring to education, and its interface a model of the strengths of the NeXT Interface Builder development tool.
