Rainer Joswig has a collection of promotional brochures for lisp products from the days of yore. I'll be posting his scans periodically.
Now, here's Rainer:
So it is time for some heart warming memories, now that the cold winter days are coming. We start publishing a series of Lisp memorabilia from before the "dark ages". First there will be some information about the TI Explorer Lisp machines. Little information about those is available on the Internet - compared to the more popular Symbolics Lisp machines.
The first brochure is about Texas Instrument's "microExplorer Computer System", a combination of an Apple Macintosh II and a Lisp processor on a NuBus card. Actually Texas Instruments used the NuBus first on their Lisp machine series before Apple introduced it with the Macintosh II.
The heart of the microExplorer is a 32 Bit Lisp microprocessor that runs an operating system written in Lisp. The software did support ZetaLisp, Common Lisp, Zmacs (an Emacs-like editor) and much more.
Btw., used microExplorers are extremely hard to find.
