Hardcopy Terminal

Russell S


My early computing experiences were on a hardcopy terminal, a Model 33 Teletype in a computer room at lunch time in junior high and high school. In order to kind of replicate that experience, I have cobbled together a PS/2 keyboard, a daisy wheel serial printer (DEC LQP02), and a Teensy-based interposer board. With the BSDgames package and a Raspberry Pi, it is possible to play Trek again as it was intended.
