This is part two of my three part series from the Vintage Computer Festival on April 6, 2014 in Wall New Jersey.  Here I take a look at one of the Apollo Guidance Computers (AGC) with flown components from Apollo 14, and I take a tour through the great exhibits with running 8-bit and 16-bit systems and some demonstrations on how these 70's and early 80's systems worked.  Enjoy!
