The PDP-10 KI10 console panel

I always was fascinated by the PDP-10, model KI10 for two personal reasons:

  • it's been the first "real computer" I got in touch with.
  • it has one of the most beautiful front panels.

So when one KI10 panel appeared on eBay in autumn 2012 there was no choice. I bought it, began restauration and connected it to BlinkenBone

And two years later I made a  virtual Java version of it, do be run on everybodies desktop.

Read on about building the KI10!

(And meanwhile there's an article on HACK A DAY about it)
