Nixe tube love.


  1. We took it apart some time ago. A series of photos on this Wang 700 Advanced Programmable Calculator:

  2. We had Wang 702B’s in High School. By fiat, TDK tapes were required. Some students programmed the printer plotter to play “Mary had a little lamb” – that lasted until a teacher walked in as the student was re-tightened the head screws. When it played, you could watch the screws rotate out…

    These were solid machines. We learned a lot about programming. Thanks for the memories!
