This is the Vital I video computer for the 727 simulator.
The computer is a Varian Data Systems computer, which I think at the time
was a subsidiary of Sperry-Univac (1966)
The gray shape to the lower left of the image is a 20
milliamp current-loop (predecesor to RS-232) teletype terminal. This
is used to communicate with the computer instead of using the
front panel switches.
Here is a good closeup of the 727's simulator computer.
I'm sorry that I don't have any images of the 727 simulator
itself, but I ran out of space on the
flash disk the camera used.
