Default Mattel Aquarius

I was opening Boxes in the loft looking for something and this turned up.

Its probably been boxed since 1988 when we prepared to move to Exeter.

The history is somewhat cloudy but it was bought either late 1983 or early 1984 when they were selling them cheaply ISTR 50 I think in WH Smiths.

The plan was to use it as a learning tool for my then 1 year old son when he was a bit older.

These were horribly limited but I did make up various interfaces bigger memory and disable the horrible internal basic.

I haven't found the accessories (if indeed I still have them )

My main PC at that time was still an Apple 2

First task is to find a 625 TV with an an analogue tuner!

Might be one in the flat.

Cheers
