The Media Archaeology Lab was fortunate to have a visit this week from Kevin Kane, a talented student at the University of Colorado Boulder, who took a series of photos of some of the MAL’s holdings. We are working on compiling a complete, detailed catalogue of the lab’s complete holdings – until then, hopefully these photos give you a sense of the lab. Enjoy!
This picture captures most of the MAL’s fully functional Apple computers, from an Apple 1 replica to an iMac G4.
The MAL’s collection of PCs – from left to right: Kaypro II, Commodore 64, Vectrex, Compaq Portable, Commodore Amiga 500, IBM 5150, NeXT Cube.
The MAL has a substantial collection of Apple IIe’s – some are fully functional and others are in need of repair. Also notice the Mattel Aquarius computer on the third shelf.
The MAL also has a modest collection of games and software, particularly for Apple II, Commodore 64, and Commodore Amiga.
MAL’s growing collection of early e-literature.
Finally, the MAL has a collection of analog machines including this beautiful Califone record player from, I think, the 1960s.
