The Datasaab D2, a concept computer from Sweden, “only” 200 kg with 15 kilobyte of memory and running at 100,000 additions per second. It was a prototype designed to test the feasibility of computerized navigation aid in aircraft. Datasaab was the computer division of the aircraft manufacturer Saab, which made fighter jets for Sweden.
(Lightly abstracted from the article, which covers many machines, some familiar and others not.) I like this one because it has a bit of the Wallace and Gromit about it.
We often think of computers as a very modern phenomenon, but there were actually plenty of computers around 50 years ago. They just weren't an everyman commodity, instead limited to goverment and corporate use. And they certainly weren't small. Some of them had imaginative names like Whirlwind, Colossus and Pegasus, while others were slightly less poetic with names like Z4, AN/FSQ-7 and ENIAC. Below we have listed as many as 19 examples of compu...

On this day:
At 22nd August of 1987, Nintendo releases The Legend of Zelda in America and Europe, the first of one of their longest-running and most popular series of games. The Legend of Zelda was a bestseller for Nintendo, selling over 6.5 million copies. It's often featured in lists of games considered the greatest or most influential and is considered a spiritual forerunner of the role-playing video game.

The Legend Of Zelda is an important milestone in video game history. It was the first of it's kind: it combined action/adventure with puzzles and some role-playing elements. Legend of Zelda was released around 1986 in Japan, and 1987 in the U.S. and Europe. This game was way ahead of its time, and here is why...Legend of Zelda was one of the first games to have battery back-up memory which let you save your game. No more entering long passwords and making a small mistake when writing them down, which could lead to having to start over from the beginning.

The game is the first in the Legend of Zelda franchise, starring a young boy named Link on his quest to rescue Princess Zelda from the evil wizard Ganon. In this game, Link must collect the pieces of the Triforce of Wisdom to reforge it and defeat Ganon.

Unlike the other worldwide releases, the original Japanese Famicom Disk System version of The Legend of Zelda took advantage of a notable piece of hardware which was absent in the Nintendo Entertainment System in Europe and North America: a microphone built into the controller. If a microphone was included in the controller wired to the first slot, players could yell into it to defeat Pols Voices in the game.

Although the feature itself is still included in the coding in European and North American versions of the game, the lack of a microphone for those controllers prevented players in those regions from accessing that aspect of the gameplay directly.

The Legend of Zelda takes place in the land of Hyrule. The evil sorcerer, Ganon, had ravaged the land with his armies in searching for and acquiring the Triforce of Power. In order to keep Ganon from also gaining the Triforce of Wisdom, Princess Zelda divided it into eight pieces and scattered them in hidden dungeons throughout Hyrule.

Zelda's assistant, Impa, escaped to seek out one who may rescue Zelda from Ganon. However, Impa was hunted down and surrounded by Ganon's henchmen but was saved by a young boy named Link. Impa told Link all that had happened, and Link resolved to find the Triforce, defeat Ganon, and rescue Princess Zelda.

In The Legend of Zelda, the player controls Link from a top-down perspective. The A button is dedicated to the sword, and the B button can be assigned to any other item in Link's inventory. At the start of the game, Link starts with only a small shield, but throughout the game, he is able to gather many items including: three different swords, two boomerangs, a large shield, a ladder, a raft, a bow and arrow, bombs, candles, potions, a power bracelet, a magic wand, a flute, two rings, a magic key, and the silver arrow. Items may be gathered from dungeons as well as purchased from merchants.

Link starts the game in the overworld where he must search for eight secret dungeons, each holding a piece of the Triforce. The overworld is varied and contains many environments including mountains, lakes, deserts, forests, caves, coastal regions, and a graveyard. The overworld is filled with many creatures which often drop rupees (the in-game currency) or hearts when defeated. There are also living-restoring fairies scattered throughout the overworld.

The dungeons are underground labyrinths containing secret passages, locked doors, special items, and many enemies. Each dungeon has a unique shape (eagle, lion's head, snake, etc.) to make them easier to navigate. Each dungeon also contains special items which are used to assist Link with his quest including a map and compass which help Link find his way to the dungeon's final boss. Upon defeating the boss, Link receives a heart container and a piece of the Triforce. There are a total of nine dungeons: eight containing Triforce pieces plus Ganon's fortress.

The game is also notable for its non-linearity. "Clues" are given sporadically by shopkeepers and other non-player characters, though the incredibly poor translation means these clues are rarely useful in the English version. For example, the cryptic "Dodongo dislikes smoke" is meant to be a hint to use bombs on the Dodongo boss in the second dungeon.

The "Second Quest" is one of the first times that a New Game Plus feature was accessible in a game. After one completion of the game, the player has the option to start over a more difficult game, where enemies are tougher, item placement is different, and dungeons are reworked. Additionally, the Second Quest can be accessed at any time by naming the character ZELDA when starting a new file.

The Legend of Zelda series has been one of Nintendo's most active since its domestic introduction back in 1987. In addition, it's been one of the most popular series of games ever created. The several sequels that have been released over the last 29 years have all followed the same basic blueprint as the original action adventure game that was released on the NES.

This Teenage IBM Employee Got His Job By Buying An Old Mainframe Computer #makereducation

Fun story from Fast Company.

The IBM z890 Mainframe computer weighs 1,500 pounds and stands over five feet tall. When it was first unveiled in 2004, it cost over $300,000. At that time, the z890 was a cutting-edge solution that helped midsized enterprises run their businesses. A 2004 ComputerWorld article described it as small, but by today’s standards it’s a big honking computer, and it’s for anything but personal use.

" ... there’s a troubling fact about modern neural networks: Nobody knows quite how they work. And that means no one can predict when they might fail."

Couldn't the same be said about humans?
