A diorama of an IBM 1401 mainframe data center #Art @6502b @IBM
Nicolas posts on Instagram some wonderfully detailed miniature replicas of an IBM 1401 mainframe and peripherals.
IBM 1401 CPU unit scratch build. Testing out the light controller. This is an atmega based controller I designed to control the bunch of lights on the diorama and the motors on the tape drives. The fiber was pretty hard to set up in the small unit but I think it’s gonna look great.
Here are some more pictures below – visit the Instagram page to be amazed.
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
