CDC 6600

Rob @ 12:48 AM

The CDC 6600 was a mainframe computer made by Control Data Corporation, used extensively for applications such as nuclear research. Designer Seymour Cray would go on to found his own company, Cray Research, and design the famous Cray-1 supercomputer.

I find the design of the workstation really beautiful to look at. The desk is roomy and practical, and the dual circular screens look like one of my favorite pairs of round green sunglasses. I'd like to build a modern computer workstation that looks like the CDC 6600 someday.
