Jonataen Jiménez, Jose Luis Eguía
Commodore was one of the companies that led the democratization of computing in the late 1970s and 1980s, whose legacy remains unspoken but lives on today. We often forget that these companies developed in a cultural and social context that directly or indirectly marked their development. 2001: A Space Odyssey was one of these influences, appearing tied to Commodore as the flagship of the future in conceptual strategy, advertising, or industrial design.
In Commodore Odyssey (1977-1985) the evolution of the brand is structured through legendary computers such as the Commodore 64 or the Amiga 1000 , accompanied by the rest of its extensive production (including its prototypes), but without neglecting the environment in which they appeared. Its exciting history up to 1985 is intertwined with exceptional and varied names such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Sir Clive Sinclair, President Ronald Reagan, William Shatner (Captain Kirk from Star Trek), the artist Andy Warhol or Deborah Harry (the singer of Blondie) and companies that collaborated or competed against Jack Tramiel's quasi-military Commodore, such as the small Micro-soft and Apple, Texas Instruments, IBM or Atari. Commodore's Odyssey had begun.
