My New,Old Mego 2-XL

So I finally managed to score a classic Mego 2-XL educational robot shaped 8-track playing toy. The device asks you questions, and you choose multiple choice answers, pushing the corresponding answer button. Simple but cool, I really wanted one of these when I was a kid…And now I have one!

Check out the crappy demo’s I made below:

A REAL Classic Computer

19 04 2008

difference-engine The London Science Museum has completed work on Babbage’s Difference Engine No. 2, 120 years after the death of it’s inventor, Charles Babbage. This Victorian mechanical computer was never completed during it’s designer’s lifetime due to many factors including cost, manufacturing difficulties and the fact that Charles Babbage had a bad attitude that tended to piss off investors.

My question is: Does it play Quake?
