I forget why, but awhile ago I decided I really wanted to take a toy computer and turn it into a more advanced one. After some searching on ebay, I fell in love with this Talking Computron from 1986 and decided to use it as my base.
I'm going to model it after a Kaypro II because they have such a similar shape. I haven't decided whether I also want to emulate the functionality of the Kaypro (perhaps with floppy disk drive, etc), or whether I just want to create a portable Raspberry Pi system that functions like a modern day computer would.
The Talking Computron with the Kaypro II I'm going to model it after.
