Speaking of that pioneering machine, does anyone know if there are any plans by the CHM to try to make the MIT engineering prototype operable? I last saw it in use at MIT about 45 years ago, when it was housed adjacent to the TX-0 and the two were being used for speech synthesis experiments. From what I understand the operable machine on display at the CHM is a later C production version.
