We hate 2020!

Sadly re-opening has now been postponed. Read More >>>

FM Towns 2DF

The name FM Towns, means Fujitsu Micro, and the Towns part came from Fujitsu naming their products after Nobel prize winners, in this case Charles Townes, the 1964 winner for physics. The E was dropped before production, so to make clear how to pronounce the name.

After realising that software sales drove hardware, the machine was the home of some great arcade conversions of the day, primarily using the CD-ROM format.

 

 

This console has arrived at the museum with the kind generosity of Jonny Blanchard of Re Inthused
