Recomp Computer



#3

Has anyone heard of the Recomp Computer? This is an ad from the December, 1960 issue of Scientific American I came across. Sounds interesting (40 bit word size, built-in floating-point arithmetic, built-in square root command!). I Google'd Recomp but did not find much on the web.

OK, here is some detailed information on this computer, and pictures. Fascinating.
