A demo of the homebrew line simulator allowing an IBM PC 5150 to "dial in" to a TI Silent 707 printing terminal:



@wokuno The barrel jack is actually a pretty nice one, too. I think maybe it's an old Radio Shack job?

The line jacks are (probably more-or-less obvious from the picture) just superglued together and then hot glued upside-down to the copper clad ;-)

@elb there’s a really cool community of artist who just fuck around with copper clad and random parts to make awesome analog installations. sadly the name of the artist I follow escapes me.

@wokuno Circuit sculpture can be a lot of fun!

This is just exigencies of the moment, though, not sculpture. :-)
