Retro Computers: Then and Now – Coleco ADAM

I have a photo of myself from 1987 using the Coleco ADAM computer. It looks as though I am using SmartLOGO, which is an art program in which you tell the turtle (cursor) to draw objects on the screen by commanding it to move forward 10, right 45, forward 25, left 60, etc..

So I thought I’d take a similar photo today of me using an ADAM computer. Sadly, it is not the same computer as in the original photo. On a good note, I have more Coleco ADAM stuff now than I did then =)
