"EDSAC In Your Pocket" - a fully functional remake

EDSAC, first run in 1949 and presently being recreated at TNMoC, was certainly a room-sized computer but has been remade in pocket size by David Boucher. Here’s his Hackaday project page and here’s a nice explanatory video:


There is an EDSAC emulator written in BCPL by Martin Richards. (Along with some papers, and programs). It’s probably no coincidence that MR studied/worked in Cambridge where EDSAC was built…

I’ve attached a poster from Cambridge about it.

Actually, can’t attach due to this place not liking PDF, however

That’s a nice poster! Also of interest, perhaps, there’s an in-browser emulator for EDSAC here.
