The Apple Cassette Interface (ACI) was the only accessory sold for the Apple 1 computer. It allowed saving and loading programs from cassette tape using an inexpensive tape recorder.
Vince Briel recently made a batch of replica ACI boards both as kits or pre-assembled. The board is similar to the original except using a more easily obtainable EEPROM chip rather than the ROM chips on the original design. I got one of the first batch of kits and assembled it.
