Retro PET-ing Zoo on October 10

How long has it been since you last saw a floppy disk? Too long? We thought so. CMU Computer Club proudly presents the Retro PET-ing Zoo as part of Cèilidh Weekend, Saturday, October 10 from 11:30am to 2:30pm in Gates 6121. We'll have a collection of classic computers for you to play with, along with some of our knowledgeable members to guide you through our sampling of computer history. You'll have fun and maybe even learn facts about some obscure computers that could be useful trivia some day!

Demosplash 2015

Demosplash 2015 will be held November 6–7, 2015 in the Gates-Hillman Center. Celebrating our fifth year as one of the largest demoparties in North America, we show demos live on original hardware, offering a viewing experience that can't be matched by emulators or recordings. We feature a variety of events, including talks, workshops, and open retro gaming. Find out more at, or register today!

Fall 2015 Talk Series

Our weekly talk series continues for Fall 2015 on Wednesdays at 8pm in Wean 5415. Check out descriptions of scheduled talks and their dates.

Warhol Amiga Discovery

We are proud to have worked with The Andy Warhol Museum to uncover never-before-seen artworks from Andy Warhol's original Amiga disks. In 2014, a short documentary was made about the process, as well as how our members' extensive knowledge of retrocomputing was instrumental to finding and recovering the works. Read more about this exciting discovery.
