Pong! The Vintage Computer Festival is coming back to Zürich

Nov 18, 2017 @ 10:00 AM - Nov 19, 2017 @ 5:00 PM

- CHF5

Vintage computer festivals are held across the world. And once again this November, there’s one coming back to Zürich!

Relive the home computer years, but also experience computers from from the 1950’s to the 1970’s. Remember the blinked rows of lights on massive front panels, hidden in research labs, universities and big companies? There is no admission for kids, and they will be well catered for with a large Vintage Gaming section.

Exhibitors (both private collectors and museums) have made great efforts to engage families with children, and not just computer enthusiasts, with a varied, fun but also educational experience. As it turns out, a big computer from 1970 is not so hard to understand for people today.

The event is hosted in the Rote Fabrik at Seestrasse 395.

Follow them on Twitter or check out the photo gallery from 2016.
