Slomo BBC Micro Speed Controller

Slomo gadget for the BBC Micro from Nidd Valley Products Ltd.

The Slomo provides the computer user with infinitely variable control over the speed of program execution. Nearly all software can be controlled from normal speed down to virtual standstill, or can be instantly frozen at any point.

The unit plugs directly into the computer Tube port. Power is taken from the host computer and no operational software is required.

The right hand push switch activates slow motion; a red LED indicates 'on' and speed is set by the centre dial. The left hand switch operates instant freeze frame whilst pressed, and returns to the previously set speed when released.

Date : 1985

Manufacturer : Nidd Valley Products Ltd.
