The Atlanta Historical Computing Society welcomes you to the third annual Vintage Computer Festival Southeast! We are helping to fund our event by selling a few fun products, including t-shirts, a limited supply of persistence of vision (POV) boards, a digital watch kit, and a combo Simon game and random blinky board kit.
Persistence of Vision Boards
From last year's Kickstarter, we have a few POV boards left to sell. You can program your own message, spin them around, and watch as your message is spelled out in air. The boards were designed here in Atlanta, GA, and feature the Computer Museum of America and Atlanta Historical Computing Society logos on the back. Other modes exist too, which can be cycled through by hitting the "next" button, and include the Cylon/Knightrider scanner, twinkle, snake, and the MacBook "breathe" indicator.
This year, we are offering a few digital watch kits, something you can build and wear on your wrist! It's fully programmable, too. The boards are still in production, but will be done within the next month. Updates to come!
Simon Game and Random Blinky Board
This combo package will provide you with a small Simon game to play with, complete with buzzer, as well as a random blinky board, which flashes LEDs in a random order. Pictures to come!
This year, the t-shirts feature a Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-8/E front panel in celebration of the original PDP-8's 50th birthday. They are printed locally in Atlanta, GA, on Gildan Ultra Cotton shirts, and look and feel great.

Risks and challenges
At the moment, no real risks exist for the project. The digital watch design is done, and boards are being delivered within the next week or two. The shirts are printed locally, as they were last year, and will be ready in quantity for the show. The remaining stock of POV boards from last year are tested and working, and the Simon game and random blinky board kits are already bagged and ready for delivery.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
