This picture shows my own Domesday Machine, in its latest incarnation, called Domesday XXV, assembled on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Domesday Project launch on 25th November 2011.
The Domesday System was made up of the following component parts:
|BBC Master AIV, a specially upgraded version of the BBC Master 128, fitted with internal 65C102 co-processor, Acorn SCSI interface and Videodisc Filing System ROM|
|Philips VP415 laserdisc player, an enhancement of the existing VP410 LaserVision Disc Drive, with an added layer at the bottom called the "Domesday Sandwich", containing video-mixing and Genlock circuitry and SCSI interface|
|High Resolution Colour Monitor|
|Laserdisc Player Remote Control|
|The Domesday Laser Discs|
|SCART cable to connect the Laserdisc player to the monitor|
|RGB lead to connect the BBC to the Laserdisc player|
|50-way ribbon cable to connect the BBC SCSI interface to the Laserdisc player|
My own Domesday Machine is made up of original component parts, gradually adding more bits as I have got hold of them. It has gone through a number of incarnations over the last 8 or 9 years and you can see much more about my Domesday Machine and its component parts in my section on BeebMaster's Domesday Machine.
