Galaksija Computer

Posted by Scott



I came across this gem the other day but haven’t been able to find any better shots of it. The Galaksija was an early 80′s Yugoslavian DIY computer kit designed by Voja Antonić. I found the top shot — which I believe was taken at some sort of computer museum — at Avian’s Blog. Given that this was a DIY kit, the external appearance of each unit differed and most weren’t all that interesting. But that top one is incredible; I don’t know what I’d do with it, but I want it in my studio. Anyone have any other shots of this particular one?

Bonus: “High Resolution Graphics” on the Galaksija

Ha Ha! Very cool Scott! I personally have never heard of this system. I used to own a Commodore 64 (still do I think). I also have an old Mac SE 30. Can’t say either are as cool as this box though.

Ahaha, I know very well that guy (Voja Antonic), he was indeed some kind of a computer guru here, maybe most famous by his long running TV show named Polarotor. But didn’t know about that computer, since I am of a bit later generation. Back in the days this kind of DIY magazine stuff was popular in YU, from basic civil engineering to small electronics. So surprised to see this, nevertheless.

Gorgeous indeed. I definitely would try to mod that into a wireless keyboard of some sort (shouldn’t be that hard, except if you don’t wanna touch the insides of it).

I wonder how the typing feels on it…

Hello! Well thats a surprise post there! My father actually assembled one (you could order all parts via mail) and my first contact with computers was actually via Galaksija PC.
Nice one Scott!
