The machine Designed by Wozniak, it sold for $ 666,66 when it went public in July 1976. Soon, however, its release stopped in 1977 after the new Apple II was released.
However, now SmartyKit enables you to create an exact copy of Apple I. This DIY kit is designed specifically for Apple lovers and general people interested in this type of machine.
SmartyKit includes all the accessories like breadboards and cables in a variety of colors, which will allow you to make your own copy of Apple I. Additionally, assembling the computer does not require welding.
It is a very interesting project for those who like this kind of thing. However, as the creators of the kit say, it can also act as an educational model to better understand the function of a computer and accessories of which it consists.
SmartyKit includes the following components:
Chips with firmware
PS / 2 and RCA connectors
Another interesting feature about the SmartyKit is that it includes the original Apple 256-byte operating system created by Steve Wozniak called the Monitor.
In addition to the kit, you'll need to purchase a PS / 2 to USB adapter and a Composite video adapter to HDMI to use up-to-date keyboards with the Apple I.
