That's all folks! This is our final post here on G+. Thanks for all your comments, plusses and reshares over the years.

As a fade-out we'll just watch Mike Kohn's Apple-II robot do its thing, programmed in Basic:

Mike "created a board that allows an Apple IIe to run off of a LiPO battery, then glued motors to it, created a motor control board, and connected the two together through the Apple IIe joystick port. The Apple IIe sends commands using two signals (clock / data) telling the motor control board to move forward, turn, strike with a plastic sword, or speak."

We might yet put up a static archive of all our posts somewhere on - in the meantime keep in touch with retrocomputists at
or register here for a possible resurrection of G+ retrocomputing communities:
