Harwell Dekatron / WITCH Reboot
on Nov 21, 2012 by tnmoc
A glimpse of the Harwell Dekatron / WITCH bursting back into life at The National Museum of Computing on 20 November 2012. The machine - the world's oldest original working digital computer dating from 1951 - can be seen at TNMOC, located on Bletchley Park, Buckinghamshire, UK. Opening times: http://www.tnmoc.org/visit
In front of the machine are seated two of the the designers and two early users.
Lots more videos of the event to come, so do subscribe to the TNMOC channel.
