Explain How did the Acorn Microcomputer get started?


I had designed something similar for myself, and was in the process of helping Hermann [Hauser] with his ideas for an electronic pocket book (what we might nowadays call a PDA). In the course of showing that my designs for it would work, I showed him my schematics for my own machine and was challenged to build it. So I did With my own white ceramic 6502, too. That was just the equivalent of the CPU board of the System 1 with LEDs and keyboard (all on the same bit of Veroboard) the cassette interface was added later. I think Hermann was overly impressed when it worked first time!
