Virtual 2XL

Virtual 2XL


Growing up as an only child, I spent a lot of time with an 8-track playing “robot” called 2XL. You’d get tapes and he’d ask you questions, to answer you’d press a button and then depending what you pressed it would play another portion of a track. It was pretty cool at the time and the Science tape was my favorite. Someone has made a Flash based one with many of the tapes you can try out and play. Memories! Link.

    Christmas 1977 I was allowed to open one present before my parents got up so in my bedroom at 5:00 I was ecstatic to find my own personal robot! Had to turn the volume down low so his computations wouldn’t be heard.
