Behind the scenes at the Computer History Museum
The Computer History Museum is a fascinating visit for anyone interested in the history of computing and Silicon Valley. But there’s more there than meets the eye. Literally. Hidden from public view is a huge back storeroom with hundreds of artifacts, including a prototype tablet computer called the Apple “Cadillac,” an AT&T picture phone, Apple Lisas and the Altair 8800, a popular kit computer, which a young company called Micro-Soft wrote programming tools for. Also get a peek at a rare Canon Cat PC, designed by Jef Raskin of Apple fame, as well as wooden wheels from the famous Wagon Wheel bar, a Silicon Valley institution.
