First Supercomputer Cray-1 Pendant Necklace

First Supercomputer Cray-1 Pendant Necklace

"There's something about the speed of light; It's just hard to get around." ~ Seymour Cray

This pendant is crafted right here at Mini Museum HQ and includes a small section of an original Cray-1 Module Board. This board section is set into a sterling silver backing and sealed in a layer of resin. Both black and brown pendant variants are available.

LEAD WARNINGPCB Module board sections do contain lead as part of their manufacturing process. All module board pendants will have their surfaces sealed to avoid direct contact with lead.

Lead is known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm. For more information go to

Seymour Cray was a legend in the world of early digital computers. He was also a veteran of past attempts to create large supercomputers: "If you work in a large corporation it is very hard to keep on one track for 4-5 years. So, I think that building large computers should be done with the fewest possible people. One is perfect, but it can't quite work with one. The next best thing is about 12."

Eschewing the methods of the past, Cray created a new kind of supercomputer company using just four main principles: simplicity, size, discipline, and cooling.
