The story of the Computer Which Refused to Die

This project is coming soon. Sign up to receive updates and be notified when this project launches.

Galaksija is a DIY computer designed by Voja Antonić in 1983, in Belgrade, former Yugoslavia. It proved to be a big success in the Balkans region, kickstarting the local computing scene, and helping entire generations of hobbyists and engineers get up to speed with their Western peers.

Today, Galaksija still lives on, in the hearts of all people who built it, or used it, in the 80s and 90s, but that’s not where the story ends. New kits are being built, and retro gaming parties are organized, on now-hard-to-find original Galaksijas.

"Galaksija: The Computer Which Refused to Die" is a documentary, which will follow the story of Galaksija from its inception, to the current year. It will feature interviews with all key people involved, including Voja Antonić, Dejan Ristanović, Zoran Modli, among others. And, for all you retro-computer enthusiasts, a limited run of hardware kits will be produced, and distributed for certain pledge levels. Stay tuned!
