Cameron Kaiser has an excellent blog post on using TI's bubble memory terminals as a simulated paper tape punch/reader for the KIM-1 computer. Much detail and many pics of the workings of the 763/765. Also 745, et al. And some history. Apparently MOS used these as development terminals for the KIM-1 board. At least, as Cameron notes, until Commodore bought them out. 🙂

Thank you, an interesting post.

 

The ticket machines on London Underground in the late 80's and early 90's used 0.5MB and 1.0MB bubble memory Eurocard boards to store the ticket transactions during the day and they were uploaded to the main servers after midnight.

I've one i must interface to something one day.
