The Hektor (sometimes known as the PT502, although this is actually the course number) was a single board computer used by the Open University to teach electronic and engineer students how to design and build a microcomputer. On completing the course the computer was to be returned to the Open University.

This example in our collection is an Issue C board. It is in its original box with course booklets, user manual, experimentation notes, and University correspondence.
