The C64 is in an auto repair shop in Poland
@cypnk I agree with you. But the problem is deeper. There was more variety in the past. Now there are only big corporations left, so they don't have to compete with each other as they used to. Most of the equipment is manufactured in China. It kills diversity and ingenuity. That's true of almost all products, not just computer hardware.
@cypnk I want that screen
here is the original article (unfortunately I can't read Polish, so I had to use a translator service) reading this and looking at the rest of the workshop it seems the engineers at the garage custom built the driveshaft balancing equipment, which uses analogue computer technology, and the C64 running a custom BASIC program processing the figures that are displayed on the analogue meters..
