MARCH is getting this next week:

2361923620

It's a George A. Philbrick analog computer. It was custom-made for M.I.T. in 1958 and used at the university's mechanical engineering laboratory until 1970.

It will be on display in time for VCF East. :)

Looks great! It needs a few patch cords running here to there. :)

Thanks for saving this piece of history. Hopefully one day I'll get to see computers like this in person.

All are welcome to visit us in New Jersey! But your easiest path to seeing awesome stuff is to attend the Vintage Computer Festival Midwest, held every fall in Chicago.
