The Altair is back

Scribd Turns Three, Gets A New Look And Logo

Vince Briel, computer creator, has rebuilt the original Altair 8800, the world’s first home computer, and added a VGA and PS/2 keyboard. The computer emulates Intel’s 8080 processor with an Atmel AVR microcontroller and it has a full complement of exciting lights on the front for you to impress your friends with.

Briel will be selling the PC as well as the case itself if you want to put your own PC inside an Altair lookalike. He also makes an Apple 1 replica for you to “solder together,” which sounds like a hoot.
