Home Computing History


Welcome to Binary Dinosaurs, the online display of a real collection of nearly 500 computers that begins at the Magnavox Odyssey from 1972, travels through the 'pong wars' of the 1970s, visits the explosion of diversity and excellence that created the home computer market of the early 80's and ends, well, as time has gone on it's been proved it doesn't end - my former main Mac G5 is here now and pretty soon the machine this site is running from could be declared vintage too...

(I must at this point apologise for most of the pictures here, they were mostly taken in 2000-2003 when bandwidth was precious and digital cameras weren't the best)
Head up to the Control Panel to find your way around the site and enjoy your visit!

I've finally added pics of a CPT 4200 Cassette Power Typing system courtesy of Santo Nucifora, and some 4200 boards from Jules Richardson. Thanks chaps! See the link below:

An update I forgot to add back in October, a chance finding of the next-gen STC Executel in the wild, the SDX Operator's Console! There's a pic in one of the updates on the STC page...

Happy 40th birthday to the machine that is the reason I'm sat here now typing these words, the Sinclair ZX80. I really should upgrade the pictures I have of mine on the following page...

I've just learned of the death of the father of the 6502 CPU, Commodore PET, ACT Sirius 1 and a multitude of other things - Chuck Peddle. RIP sir, you have my eternal gratitude. Read more at Team 6502:
