You know, we’re not sure how this has escaped our attention for so long. This is due to the summer heat. did you know that [Look Mum No Computer] opens a museum for obsolete technology a few weeks ago?
This museum is (not) obsolete located by the sea in the borough of Ramsgate in Kent, England, which is where you are too the micro-museum, a collection of computer and video game history. [LMNK] says it took 10 months to build the museum, which is a maze of vintage delights including decades of computers and computer accessories, signal generators, VFDs, vacuum tubes, old phone sets, and 150-in-one electronics kits worth 50 years . This list doesn’t even scratch the surface.
Around every corner there are forgotten technological gems and unprecedented ones, and the space is riddled with [LMNK]’s own great synthesizer creations. (Who could forget the Furby Organ?) The aim is to make them as interactive as possible and to keep adding to the collection. Until now, [LMNK] welcomed visitors of all origins and ages, and that’s what he wanted. Can’t make it all the way to Ramsgate? We neither. Do what we did and take the video tour below.
If you can get there, you might want to check it out the National Museum of Computer Science, even.
