Other people's relay computer projects:
- Computer System Architecture, M. Mano: A classic text on computer hardware design. An essential read when designing a CPU.
- The Computer - My Life, K. Zuse: Zuse's autobiography tells not only the fascinating story of his pioneering work on relay machines
and how they came to be during WWII, but is also filled with interesting technical details.
- Modern Mikroprocessorteknik: A book on microprocessor design with a nice introduction to microprogramming. In Swedish.
Places of interest in the Real World:
There is a predisposition towards German sights in this list, mostly related to Konrad Zuse.
- Deutsches Museum in Munich, Germany: The world's largest technical museum and one of the most overwhelming places on this theme that
I've ever visited. The computer science exibition must be one of the most impressive in the world, with particular highlights being the Zuse machines Z3 and Z4.
- Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California: A huge well-cataloged collection and *the* place to experience all aspects of,
particularly American, computer history.
- Konrad Zuse Museum Hünfeld: Zuse set up his large company and spent the last part of his life in the beautiful little town of Hünfeld, Germany.
The town features a charming little museum dedicated to him and his machines, including specimens of the Z11, Z22, Z23, Z64 and the Z3 Nachbau.
- Technische Sammlungen der Stadt Dresden I recently happened to pass through the city of Dresden, and had the good fortune of visiting this museum
which features an exibition of Eastern European computing history. Also some Zuse.
- Heinz Nixdorf Museum: Said to be the world's biggest computer museum.
