What a company this was - as far as I know it introduced the concept of low-end
multiprocessor machines with it's 'Transputer'. I remember a demonstration on
BBC TV's Tomorrow's World programme featuring a Transputer machine running the
multi-tasking (and possibly multi-threaded) OS OCCAM in which some butterflies flew
off one monitor screen and onto another one.....absolutely mindboggling in its
day to the likes of me. Fortunately one of my fellow collectors used to work
at Inmos and he's donated some transputer modules to the museum - cheers John
Shown are 4 CPU modules, 4 transputer chips and a humble Sharp Z80 CPU.
