Abstract

GENIAC was a build-it-yourself computer kit for teens published by ACM co-founder Edmund C. Berkeley in 1955. With 6 rotatable wheels, ten light bulbs and batteries, young experimenters could wire simple circuits to demonstrate digital logic and play crude games. This report describes a project to recreate the functionality of GENIAC and its successor products using 2D web technologies, allowing a new generation of users to play all of the original circuits as well as create and share their own designs.
