Computer History Museum of America's PDP-15. This particular PDP-15 was part of a lab which included a PDP 8i serving as a machine data interface and various industrial lab equipment. See link below. Click image for larger view.

Here is Evan Koblentz's Lego robot. He re-assembled it from memory, as FedEx apparently includes disassembly as part of their service. There is always a risk if one ships their exhibit, maybe next time he'll take his robot on the plane. Here is a pic of the Laser 128 computer that drives the robot. click image to view larger view.

My exhibit was the DEC Rainbow I happened to be working on. I threw it in the car and drove from Phila to Atlanta to attend the event. You can also see my PiDP8 in this photo. It's connected to the Rainbow serial port so that from the Rainbow one can log into the Pi zero within. The PiDP is networked and also has the IRSSI IRC chat program installed. With this set up exhibit visitors were able to chat through the Rainbow with vcfed forum members on I alternated the chat with a nice color chess program called ChessWright. The Rainbow color display capabilities are pretty good. We had the VR241 connected to a Pole Position II arcade video board for a while. Click image to view larger view.
