“HAL’s friends” is a collection of home computers and video games, spanning from the early 1980s to the present day.

Computers are my passion, and having experienced the birth of mass computerization, I decided to pay homage, but above all, to preserve and remember a unique period. Within this website, you will find my collection, which includes computers, peripherals, software, magazines, books, and anything that helps recreate the atmosphere of those times.

For numerous of these computers, usability has become challenging: certain peripherals are difficult to find or no longer functional. Additionally, transferring programs is often quite arduous. To modernize these dinosaurs, I’ve developed several hardware projects. Visit the projects page to learn more about them and find out where they are available.
