McClendon Home Computer

As Advertised.

The McClendon Home Computer is a product made by McClendon Robotics in Minerva's Den as part of the Minerva's Den DLC. It is allegedly a computer system that a citizen of Rapture could have in their home, but is closer in size to the business computers used by a medium-sized company, as opposed to modern personal computers, which were invented in 1981.

Second Generation computer (program in memory) processes data in batches using data/programs on tape or punchcards. The technology appears to still be using electron vacuum tubes. This would be a reengineering of contemporary computers in the middle 50s, before Rapture added its own developments, as well as updating computer technology to Transistors (invented 1947).
