Description

Negative/Black and white. 10,000 wooden parts contain the rules for Tic Tac Toe. The front contains 9 flags. A human player moves one flag to make his move. Mechanical linkages cause the machine to respond with its answer almost immediately. The machine never loses. The manufacturers of the Tinkertoy Computer are Danny Hillis and Brian Silverman. On the left is Mitch Kapor, Chairman of the Board of Lotus, and on the right is Danny Hillis. Behind them are two women--one in dark dress holding a glass and the other in dress has her arms folded, and behind them are others.
