RetroStore: Curate and Preserve

RetroStore is an effort to curate and preserve applications written for vintage computers. As legacy storage media such as cassette tapes and floppy disks become scarce, it is important to collect and archive software from way back. RetroStore is a free and open source cloud-based service that stores old applications along with some metadata such as short descriptions as well as screenshots. It offers the same simplicity and ease of browsing and downloading old programs as modern app stores for mobile platforms. Currently we only support programs for the TRS-80 Model I/III but we plan to extend this to other vintage platforms. We will demo RetroStore as well a hardware extension to the TRS-80 I/O bus that allows to access RetroStore from a physical machine.
