Watching the film again yesterday, in the Cheyenne Mountain set, quite a bit of mainframe hardware is visible. IBM disk drives and tape drives, what appear to be Control Data tape drives, line printers, and other hardware I don't recognize. The producers assembled a huge collection of hardware; one would have to carefully go through each scene to catalog it all. With all the consoles and displays and blinkenlights and other props, one helluva set! Pretty amazing film for the day. A bit hokey ending...but given today's AI, spot on.
