This is a small exhibition of between 5 and 10 Danish computers from the 1980s and the 1990s. There will be a couple of Z80 and Intel based computers running CP/M which you will be able to try out. Mike from RetroComputing with Mike (in cooperation with the Danish Historic Computer Society)
Marcel will bring his Gigatron TTL kit computer. A single-board computer based on simple 7400-series logic, yet powerful enough to play video games and run BASIC. Marcel will demonstrate a new feature: the ability to run 6502 programs, such as Microchess from 1976. All without a microprocessor on board, let alone a 6502! Marcel van Kervinck
Leibniz, Zuse, Nixdorf and others – German inventors and companies have had a lasting effect in computing history. As a location for research and development, as an important market, and as a place of manufacturing, both the Federal Republic of Germany and the German Democratic Republic have played an important role in history. As the 50th anniversary of renowned East German manufacturer Robotron approaches, we celebrate the event with a special exhibition on computers from Germany. We thus invite exhibitors to present (working) historic computers with a relation to Germany – independently of whether they came from a German company, were designed or "Made in Germany".
If the sophisticated nerd of 1982 founds a computer company then the product of choice is of course a Motorola 68000-based modular computer that is faster and less expensive than a monolithic, non-extensible Apple Macintosh. The operating system is to be written in Modula-2 using the self-developed Modula-2 compiler (that is of course also included). The cheetah (Gepard in German) is selected as the company name. Computer of this brand will, later on, control cool things such as experimental university-developed ion drives. Fritz Hohl
