    Default Does anyone here remember the NABU computer?

    I don't know if this product ever had any real penetration in the US, or even how far across Canada it went, but this computer/game system remains one of my fondest gaming memories, even to this day.

    For the uninitiated, the NABU was a (for it's time) state of the art technology, that actually failed in large part because it was ahead of it's time.

    The market wasn't ready for this kind of innovation yet, but I had one, and I remember it was incredible.

    Some infor can be found HERE.

    And HERE.

    And HERE.

    Hope someone else remembers this!

    I wasn't brought into the world til '84 and I have no idea what the hell that thing is. With the large flood of 8-bit systems and all in the 80's and older systems before, I'm really scetchy in knowing non-main stream systems, including computers.

    From wikipedia:

    It was also the Network that over threw the evil blockade. Naboo is an idyllic world close to the border of the Outer Rim Territories, and is inhabited by peaceful humans known as the Naboo, and an indigenous species of intelligent amphibians called the Gungans.
    Yeah, hit the hijack jackpot there, didn't we.

    From the first link:

    The host computer for the NABU Network was a DEC mainframe. The data transfer rate was a very fast 6.4 megabytes per second-information was instantly accessible. Most Internet users today just dream of such speeds!
    Hahaha. That would've been the total bandwidth, I imaginine, that or it had such high speeds because there were only two people on it.

    Sounds like a neat project all the same.
