ThumpNugget Posted July 28, 2010 Share Posted July 28, 2010 Looking at an October 1975 BYTE magazine I saw only two machines being advertised: The Altair and the Sphere. The Sphere was supposed to have BASIC, a keyboard, and a display. There is a Wikipedia article on it: Spere 1. It looks like about 1,300 were built with half of them being sold as complete systems (not in KIT form).. There was also an article in the Oct 1975 BYTE and a 2006 followup about the Sphere: http://www.swtpc.com/mholley/BYTE/Oct1975/are_they_real.htm The guy who built it is still in business: http://www.a-systems.net/company.htm Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
