AHCS at Atlanta Maker Faire (www.makerfaireatl.com
Large parking lot in Downtown Decatur
October 4th and 5th, 2014
To take a trip down memory lane and see some of the computers that started the personal computing revolution. You can also play our SPS (Steam Punked Simon) memory game, or even build your very own to take home. Try to beat the high score. It is harder than it looks!
The Atlanta Historical Computing Society officially returns to the Atlanta Maker Faire. Expect PC boards, expect solder, expect blinky
lights, expect 8bit music and 8 bit graphics.
The eminently popular, simplistically eloquent, Simon game will return
for its 3rd public appearance as it evolves further towards its fusion
of retro gaming and Steam Punk sculpture destiny. There may be other
upgrades if we can get our crack team of Mad Scientists to convince
their case workers to allow them access to the tool shed again.
Also, the retro computer display will soon move from the idea stage to
the planning stage, and then to the world domination stage.
Expect greatness. Expect the unexpected.
