After the success of Dubreq's Stylophone, creator Brian Jarvis got to work on what would be his only foray into the world of personal computing. Boasting a 6.5" plasma display, 58 key stylus operated keyboard, single-button cursor, stylish chrome faced chassis, and internal speaker—the Stylocom stood apart from the personal computers of 1975. It's most impressive feature was a self-contained record lathe that could record user compositions onto 2.5" vinyl discs.


Unfortunately, due to it's limited functionality beyond eight bar compositions, misophonic tonal quality, and tendency to crash when looping back to the start of a piece, the Stylocom was recalled hours before it's release. Nothing is known of what became of the thousands of un-shipped units but computer historians still believe at least a dozen or so managed to leave store shelves and may still be out there...

e: wowza I didn't understand the challenge at all! :D

Wooohooo! - I am in, too! :grin:

Retro is hard to do for me since I would like to put sooo much more into the shape. :undecided:
I found no space for the rubber-chicken with the pulley and a tentacle and the evil meteor and, and, and ... :~(
... lots of golden memories to drown in  ... :cool:

Here's what I squeezed into the shape



... maybe you can even recognize some of my memories? (roll)

Don't forget that the colour of the hamster is a reference to MM. ;)

Yes, Maniac Mansion is one of my essential memories about why I became addicted to p&c adventure games,
because I'll never forget how I tried to put the hamster in the microwave and got the answer:
"That's sick!" (In the original version, this action has been denied .) (laugh)
