However, Burroughs had missed the fact that that new microcomputers, such as the Apple 1 and Commodore PET, were already being used by businesses, and they could do as much and cost less. The Sensimatic developed into the Sensitronic which could store balances on a magnetic stripe which was part of the ledger card.

At its start, it produced mechanical adding machinesand later moved into programmable ledgers and then computers.
The B22 added a tower unit that housed storage. In the s, Burroughs worked with the Federal Reserve Bank on the development and seriees processing of magnetic ink character recognition MICR especially for the processing of bank cheques. Also mind the scaling and don’t forget these were done over the mic jack of my PC with a program so it can only read a max of 1v and may not of actually read some of these properly.
In conjunction with these products, Burroughs also serues an extensive range of cheque processing equipment, normally byrroughs as terminals to a larger system such as a B or B Apple Computer had been created in In the late s, the Burroughs sponsored “nixi-tube” provided an electronic display calculator.

Now I am attempting to see if I can display video out any other way then getting a Burroughs terminal since that would be pricy to get and the only ones I have found so far are screen burned and I ssries think its going to be easy or cheap to replace the tube in them.
