The Atlacatl is in Wikipedia, that’s not bad.

Thanks for that. However it appears to be little to no information on this Atlacatl computer, I could not even find a photograph or a page about it.

Hi, I had a few old photos and links but seem lost, except one that gladfully is on archive.org http://web.archive.org/web/201721132320 ... t=download

There was a Internet and Computing Museum in El Salvador where I think there was one(never went only found out it existed after it closed), but seems it had closed shortly after the lockdowns/regimen de excepcion

My friend is in the process on fixing the scan on the creativision documents, but as they are tabloid size and only has a A4 desktop scanner, is gonna take a while...

Hope we find one, seems to be NABU-before-the-warehouse-find levels of unobtanium.

Let's just hope someone have had dozens of them for decades stored in a barn.

Also, even the books are unobtanium, found the image on a Blogger post on lost media(which itself is lost media now...)

Hey there.
I wish to write a little piece of news about the Salvadoreno version of the CreatiVision.
Would you be able to send me (at my usual email) a draft article, with
- a brief story of the company/importer
- how the CreatiVision was used (e.g. TV prompter etc)
- links to resources (e.g. Youtube video of the TV commercial showing the Creativision or any scanned magazine, articles, flyers... anything 'official') ?????

Hi, my friend had recently life going on(is father now) and had no time to send it, also, had to reset the forum account just to post again, life happens but here it is

One is an ad published on one of many La Prensa Grafica's shortlived magazines(took quite some time to restore), and the other is a later(maybe early '84) classified ad on discount

Also, I'm waiting to get the lawsuit report and quite some assorted, unrelated tech scans(he has a huge stash of magazines with tons of tech ads)

Thanks so much - that's incredible material!
I look forward to much more!!!
Please when sending scans of magazines, I will also need a scan of the cover of the magazine, and also information on publisher, issue number and date.
