Home Computing History


Welcome to Binary Dinosaurs, the online display of a real collection of nearly 500 computers that begins at the Magnavox Odyssey from 1972, travels through the 'pong wars' of the 1970s, visits the explosion of diversity and excellence that created the home computer market of the early 80's and ends when things started getting boring (for me) in about 2001 with the Apple Mac G4, a machine still in use today.

Head up to the Control Panel to find yer way round the site and enjoy your visit!
