The Intel 8008 and SCELBI
The SCELBI (SCientic-ELectronics-BIology) was arguably the first
commercially available micro-computer marketed toward hobbyist.
The core of the design was based on the new Intel 8008
micro-processor. The company name, SCELBI, which stands for
SCientic-ELectronics-BIology, clearly indicates that the business
clearly had a plan to penetrate specific markets which were not
necessarily hobby oriented.
