This weekend, Sept 22nd and 23rd 2018, at Maker Faire in NYC (World Maker Faire), VCFederation is going to be doing an exhbit of new accessories for old computer. I will be showing of some of Wendell Sander's Apple-1 expansion boards. I'm using a Mimeo for obvious reasons as there will be 100,000 of my closest friends, so security and safety means we bring a replica.
So what am I actually showing off.... The plan is this...
Apple-1 Mimeo (1976) hooked up to a VGA monitor using an adapter (2014). We wil be handing out ASCII art from the Apple-1 printed out on an Imagewriter (1983) using Wendell's serial card (2015) and also demonstrating the Apple-1 acting like a USB keyboard typing into a modern computer, might even have the Apple-1 Mimeo type programs into an Apple-1 emulator. Why... Why not?
I'm sure by Friday I may think of other weird things to do with the Mimeo and modern components. Because why not, it's Maker Faire.
Anyway if your there, please stop by and say hi.
