circa 1955 GENIAC Computer. It looks like this one was from 1958, although the manual is a "first printing" so it's possible that the original owner picked up more parts over time. We'll never know.


So I was looking on this page:
http://www.blinkenlights.com/pc.shtml ... and for fun I thought I'd check Ebay to see if anyone had one for sale. Hidden in the vintage toys ... buy it now!

There really isn't much info about this computer on the web so I took a few photos and scanned a lot of the docs. When I assemble it I will post more photos. Yes I am not going to keep it in the wrappers, I plan to assemble this ... so collectors cringe! bwah ha ha! How could you resist? The box has parts for nearly two kits.

Back in the day, you used to see this thing advertised in the back of Scientific American.
