    Hi,

    Does anyone remember those BBC computers the older among us used at school.

    Do you remember a device that allowed you to draw on a piece of paper using a sort of robot attached to the computer. You had commands like move forwards, pen down etc..

    Hopefully if anyone knows what it was called I can find a YouTube video of it.

    Thanks
    Tan

    That was a Logotron Turtle, used with Acorn BBC micros and Archimedes computers.

    EDIT: Also called a Valiant Turtle.
