Maker Faire: Vintage Geek Computer Collection


The bright and shiny exhibits at this year's Maker Faire were fine and dandy, but one of the sights I was most excited to see was the exhibit of vintage, "oh so clunky, I can't believe people thought that was innovative" computers.

Hidden in a dark corner of the San Mateo Fairgrounds, was a selection of marvelously vintage geek computers (and an Atari) that have gained cult geek status for being the first/best/most hilarious/exciting of their kind.

The lineup included an old school IBM, Commodore "Super Pet," which was made in the early 80's and can actually be connected to a cassette player, early Apple computer and Atari 800, which was released in 1979 and designed to look like an old computer.
