The HP Museum
Let’s jump in the wayback machine. The march of technology is a pretty remarkable thing. Most of us are probably packing more computing power in our cell phones than we had in our home computers ten years ago. And those differences get really crazy when you start looking back 30 and 40 years. The HP Computer Museum gives you a chance to do just that. It chronicles all the various products from 1966-1992.
It is a fun look at our computing history. The bit that really floors me is the printers. While servers and desktops have relatively short lifespans, printers just keep going. As evidenced by the 2934. It was released in 1993, but we have actually sold them this year. A full thirty years after their introduction. In fact, that warranty sticker from 1989 at the top of the post is from that very printer.
More fun with Google Maps
Let’s go to the Lamborghini museum! The Google Maps easter egg in London that let you walk inside the TARDIS was fun. But this completely blows it out of the water. It’s a similar exercise, but the execution is leaps and bounds beyond what we saw in that earlier example. Click here to go to the Lamborghini museum in Bologna. Rather, to go inside the musuem. This street view drops you inside the museum that is filled with classic and modern Lamorghinis. They even have the Estoque (pictured above), which was the four door Lamborghini concept. And, I would argue, the best looking car they have ever made. But that’s not all. Keep an eye out for cars with open doors. You can climb inside and get a 360° view of the interior.
