Another Bite at the Apple: First Apple-1 Computer to Be Brought Back to Life

What happened to the very first computer Apple produced? Inventor Steve Wozniak presented the Apple-1 - Serial Number One - to educator Liza Loop. It’s one of the rarest and most important objects of the computing revolution. 

Join us as vintage computing expert Corey Cohen attempts to bring to life that first Apple-1 computer. Others have tried and failed. Will Corey prevail? Watch him at work on the restoration and hear stories from some of the original trailblazers behind the Apple-1.

Facts about the Apple-1 computer:  

  • Steve Wozniak completed and demonstrated his first prototype in July 1976 at the Homebrew Club. They went on sale shortly after.  
  • Only about 175 Apple-1s were made.  
  • When Apple offered an exchange program for its follow-on Apple II computer, most Apple-1s were removed from circulation. There are an estimated 50 remaining in the world today. Only a small number have been restored to working condition. 

What you’ll experience:  

  • On January 18-21 between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT join the live stream to view the restoration in progress. (This timeline is an estimate. If the restoration is successful, the live stream will end when the computer is restored.)
  • Since an earlier attempt made to restore this Apple-1 was unsuccessful, there is an element of the unknown in this restoration. You will see the action and outcome unfold before your eyes!
