Me too. I have a nice IMSAI system but not the IMSAI floppies like you.

Anyone know off hand what was used for the speech synthesis? It doesn't sound like the GI or Digitalker chips.

I'd like to get one of the modems. I have a nice Hayes 300 external and a PMMI internal.

I thought it was an Electrohome monitor? The speaker box was made up.

Todd Fischer had the original WarGames prop system, and has the IMSAI name
I think? At least that is what I believe his name was (it's been a
while. Nice guy, I chatted with him over email for a bit.)

War Games is the reason I wanted an IMSAI. Checked that one off, but do
not have the matching floppy drive set from the movie (those are now a bit
expensive.) One day.

I believe the WOPR prop had one of the earliest LCD screens as well.
