It's just a storage cabinet, but you can't buy one

Commissioned storage cabinet inspired by Magnetic Tape Units, specifically the IBM 2401 (1964)

The tape mechanism is decoration only and does not function. DC motors, blinking LEDs and audio streaming(vintage computer sound samples) are run by an Arduino board inside the control unit on top of the cabinet.

Love the streamline age of the steam locomotives.
I think that is the Commodore Vanderbilt.

And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him.

I remember how much I loved Mac OS 8.6, and then how much Mac OS 9.x.x was just wasteful and had that whole terrible Sherlock and the uglier version of QuickTime.

I always referred to them as “NutScrape.

a hundred years is about the lifespan of a sturgeon, so maybe it was kind of a soylent green type situation

Article said it was released after being measured and weighed.
Unless we know by tagging this fish may have been caught and released several times over the decades.

This is like me going to the dealer for parts in my 1982 RX-7. Hell, my "beater car" is a 20 year old Lexus.

That ad isn't quite accurate. The Model 100 did include bundled software; it was rudimentary, but it was there. I know because I had one. Also, while it only came stock with 8K of RAM, it was trivially easy to pop the back off and add more. (Well, assuming you could find the chip for sale)
