The place where you get the results of an ENIAC is, of course, in the
programming of this single-chip ENIAC emulator. Now, I too, would
like to have the real thing (how many were made?) but, I do not
expect my want to be fulfilled. Yet, via this chip, I may still afford
the pleasure of programming an ENIAC. For the hardware tinkering
people on this list, I can understand their dissatisfaction. For those
of us who want to experience the software/user side of things, this
chip is not so much of a disappointment.

Amen, Max. The only thing one would probably get out of
that 'radio' would
be a work-alike thing. Exactly the same for that ENIAC-on-a-chip.
Work-alike, probably, but no where near the same as having either the real
thing or a functional replica with tubes/relays/other fun parts.
