They need Radio Shack Model III's.
I once wrote a program that used the random number generator to put squares,
rectangles and circles in various spots and sizes on the screen.
We had 15 or so in the lab. For a high school open house I set them so I
could just walk around the room and hit enter to start the programs.
As I walked out of the room one machine was doing it's own thing, all the
others were putting exactly the same thing up on the screen.
