The original Altair

The original Altair

It’s been said that Arduino is the Altair of today; a game changing grassroots innovation that sparked a generation of hardware hacking. So it is kind of fitting that the Arduino booth at the Maker Faire is right around the corner from the vintage-computer.com booth that features a working Altair (among other nostalgic treasures). A little farther down the row, Vincent Briel is showing off his Altair 8800micro reproduction.
