This Digital Equipment Corporation PDP-15 computer installation is very similar to the one we used at the Helsinki University of Technology in the '70s. The vector graphic display console on the left is a VT04 with a light pen and a digitizing tablet, on its right side is a Teletype 28 KSR terminal, and in the background the 18-bit PDP-15 itself with three DECtape drives.
