Maine Science Festival @ 58 Main!
March 19, 2017 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
We are psyched to host not one but TWO Maine Science Festival events!
8-Bit Generation: The Commodore Wars
Sunday, March 19 at 1:30 PM – 3:15 PM
Join us for a Maine Premier of the documentary film 8-Bit Generation: The Commodore Wars.
When Jack Tramiel invented Commodore in the 1970’s, he envisioned computing for the masses and not just the upper classes. Spearheading the personal technology revolution and combating giants like Apple and IBM, Commodore became a household name by changing the way in which we interact, create and play with computers. From the advent of the groundbreaking Atari and Tetris games to the evolution of contemporary technological design, 8 Bit Generation dives into the home computer explosion and explores Commodore’s key role in shaping the future in which we now live.
As an added bonus: one of the key figures in the movie is a 1959 graduate of the University of Maine. (8bit generation – has more information about the film and film makers.)
