This is Flossie: The Oldest Working British Computer

Flossie is one of the oldest computers in the world, and it was revived recently thanks to these scientist: Rod Thomas and Roger Holmes. They are working on this project for over 10 years. What’s interesting about Flossie? The price! Back in the days (1962), you had to spent £250,000 in order to have it in your house. And I mean, in your whole house, because it’s so big and noisy!
