I have uploaded a set of computer props for use in your renders.
They are simple static props - no moving parts.
OBJ files are included for use in other programs.

Oh thanks.  I so wanted someting like this a while back, for one render I did.  Nice to know I can get them now if I ever decide to redo the render.

This is very cool! Makes me want to do up a Seaview interior to go with it…although it looks more like 1960s tech to me, from what I remember. None the less, it will come in very handy indeed. Thanks!

Just because something costs a lot, doesn’t mean it’s the best…

It just means it’s expensive.

I doubt it had that much memory… or was that inexpensive. grin

Max of 16K…and they were very $$$$...and very first computer I ever played with.

Of course, here’s another example of a 70s computer…

I bet that pong game outlasts XBoxes, since I have yet to see a 70’s game system break down. wink

You are right I should have called it 60’s Tech.
I guess I associate these with the 70’s because of the TV shows I watched growing up.

Glad to see I have jogged some memories of old computers.

My first computer was the Sinclair ZX81, Christmas 1981, with a whole 1K memory.
After that I upgraded to a ZX Spectrum, then downgraded to an Amstrad CPC464, them upgraded to an Amiga 500 (my favourite) before moving onto PCs.
I still had the ZX81 & Spectrum until a leaky roof last year ruined them:down:

I was trained, back in the 60s to use a NCR ledger posting machine with punch tape addon. Once every so often we would need to walk the tapes up to the big NCR computer centre, which was then in Moorgate, and the computer rooms there looked much like this.

This is what the National looked like

I learned to program in FORTRAN with one of these.  I’d punch my code onto cards, run them through the reader and go have a cup of coffee.  There were 100 bins, corresponding to the last two digits of our SS numbers, and I’d come back and find my output printout there.  I’d fix the error ( smile ) punch a new card for that line of code, and repeat the process.

Lest folks think I ‘m a total geybeard, this was in the mid 1980s….
