Noughts & crosses machine in display case.
Machine based on transistors, diodes, relays and selectors. Made by Roy Hartkopf of Alphington, commenced 1963 and delivered 1967. Restored in 2002.
Wooden case with a glass window pane in top section. Case contains a free-standing white board with printed text, white grid of nine squares (noughts and crosses board) with four attached wire strands, and a square metal transistor/relay board. Front of case has protruding wooden panel with 12 buttons and three text labels. Case has a plastic roof. It appears that several more modern components were added to the workings of the computer at some time in the recent past.
