Mattel Aquarius computer
Mattel had been riding-high on sales of its Intellivision game machine. But now they wanted something better, a real computer.
Since they themselves never designed or manufactured the Intellivision, they didn't plan on designing a new computer either. But they found someone who would: Radofin Electronics Far East, from Hong Kong.
Actually, Radofin Electronics had always been the manufacturer of the Intellivision for Mattel, and by now Radofin had also designed a small, inexpensive computer.
Mattel bought the rights to this new machine, and started marketing it in the US as the Aquarius Home Computer System.
The Aquarius was announced in 1982, but wasn't actually shown to the public until the Las Vegas Winter CES (Consumer Electronics Show) in January of 1983.
Mattel released a number of expansion peripherals for the Aquarius:
People noticed, but were unimpressed. Although inexpensive at $160, there were many, many other computer systems available with better features - 1983 was a very busy year for personal computers. With its limitations, the Aquarius is more of a game machine than a computer anyway.
The first X-10 computer controlled device was developed for the Aquarius, the "Aquarius Home Computer System Command Console". It would allow the Aquarius to control household lights and small appliances via X-10 remote-control devices. Sadly, the Aquarius disappeared before the controller was even released, so it was adapter to the TRS-80 Color Computer instead.Mattel released most of their software on cartridges, small modules that plug into the back-right of the Aquarius console. They have a very odd shape , but for a reason. When plugged into the Aquarius, they blend into the console, becoming totally unnoticeable. The system seen below has the 4K RAM expansion cart installed.
Released cartridges include: - "Snafu"- "Utopia"- "FinForm" (spreadsheet) - "FileForm" (database/word processor)- 4K RAM memory expansion - 16K RAM memory expansion - 300 baud modem (yes, in a cartridge)
There's actually not much inside the typical Aquarius cartridge, usually one to three IC chips with the game or application already burned-in for instant access.
Seen here on the right is the circuit board from inside the "Fileform" cart.
It is quite uncommon, as it has an EPROM chip with a hand-written label. An EPROM (Erasable Programmable Read Only Memory) is more of a temporary method of making a program chip, because it can be erased and used over again. Either all FileForm carts were made this slow and expensive way, or this is a very early version.
The vast majority of carts have a ROM (Read Only Memory) chip (which can never be altered) with a generic label machine-printed right onto the chip.
For further capabilities, Mattel released the Aquarius Mini Expander. It plugs into the expansion slot on the Aquarius, adding additional sound capability, and two expansion slots instead of the original one on the Aquarius.From the 1983 Aquarius Home Computer Catalog catalog:
| Lets you enjoy outstanding Aquarius video games from up to eight feet away. The Mini Expander features two detachable hand controllers, each with a l6-position control disc and 6 action buttons. Plus an audio enhancer that gives Aquarius three full sound channels to make game play even more exciting. |
The Mini Expander simply plugs into the cartridge port of the Aquarius unit. The Mini Expander itself has two ports to let the user plug in a 4K or 16K RAM cartridge and a software cartridge at the same time. Allows even more capability for home management and learning applications.
The Mini Expander is a nice addition, but the 'hand controllers' have to be about the cheapest controllers I have ever seen!
Because the Aquarius was quite unpopular, Mattel pulled the Aquarius from the market just 4 months after releasing it. In 1984, they sold the rights to the Aquarius back to Radofin and got out of the computer business entirely. They even sold the rights to the once-popular Intellivision game system to some former employees and investors.

Aquarius and Libra - Compatibility in Sex, Love and Life
AriesTaurusGeminiCancerLeoVirgoLibraScorpioSagittariusCapricornAquariusPisces + AriesTaurusGeminiCancerLeoVirgoLibraScorpioSagittariusCapricornAquariusPiscesMatch
Aquarius & Libra Sexual & Intimacy Compatibility
Aquarius can truly help Libra express their sexuality. The problems with Libra’s Sun bring too much concern for opinions of other people, so representatives of this sing go to extremes when it comes to the way they show their sexuality. They will either be afraid to be judged and seem too asexual, or have a need to show it “in spite” of everyone’s opinion and this can be quite repulsive for their partner. When it comes to sexuality, Aquarius has an entirely different approach – they simply don’t care about anyone’s opinion. They live their life in a constant search for freedom from any taboos or restrictions, and this will help Libra forget about other people, at least for some time.
Although their sex life can be quite liberating for Libra, it can also be a bit challenging for Aquarius because they will be the one who has to fight against Libra’s need to fit in. However, as two Air signs, they will both tend to be free to express their sexual desires to each other. They will like to experiment, learn about each other and their own inner desires and communicate with ease. Their sexual relations should be a strong pillar of their entire relationship, although they will usually think of their verbal ways to get along as the most important for their bond.
Aquarius & Libra Trust
Because of their righteous natures they could trust each other without exception, if they were only that sure of themselves. Their insecurities coincide very well, and they will usually help one another move through them, but the trust between them needs to be built, it is not implied. Both of these signs like to be attractive to different people and they should find a way to communicate this need in the right way. The problem can arise when Libra starts to get attached and becomes emotionally dependent on their partner. This is not something Aquarius will easily deal with and it could damage the trust of both partners, in each other and their entire relationship.
Aquarius & Libra Communication and intellect
Libra and Aquarius both have certain images to maintain. Libra wants to look nice and act nice for others, while Aquarius wants to go in the opposite direction of everyone, sometimes even if there is no reason to do so. They are both stiff in their convictions and won’t easily change their mind once they are set on it.
Aquarius won’t have such a good time waiting for Libra to make any decision in their life, no more than Libra will enjoy the spontaneous, unpredictable nature of Aquarius. Since they both rely on communication, they will have a lot to talk about and will usually find a language to solve all of their issues. Still, it won’t be easy for them to reconcile some of the differences in their approach to things. Libra is indecisive but once they make a decision, they will rather stick to it than salvage their relationship, even if it is a simple meal in question. Aquarius will have a tendency to walk away as soon as they feel pressured into anything, even if it is that same meal. So basically, they could have an enormous problem about lunch if we talk about extremes.
Still, they usually understand each other well on usual, daily things and have similar convictions that help them handle big changes in life well. In time, as they get to know each other, their personalities will get along better and they could realize that they respect each other to a point that is unreachable with anybody else.
Aquarius & Libra Emotions
Libra is a sign ruled by Venus and this makes them emotional in a way, but we should remember that it is also a sign of Saturn’s exaltation and detachment is something that makes them feel very good. This is something they will get in a relationship with Aquarius and it could help them both build a very strong emotional bond. They have strangely different goals in life, but if they harmonize them, their emotional bond should be very strong and develop much faster than we would anticipate.
The biggest obstacle that could present in their way is marriage, at some point in their relationship. Libra is a sign that represents marriage and finds it very meaningful as the institution Saturn would support. Aquarius might think of it as obsolete, even run from it and they will probably enter it only for practical reasons. It is important not to make pressure to any of the partners when this point in their relationship arises, or they might both feel repulsed and angry, leading to unnecessary conflicts and even the end of their relationship.
Aquarius & Libra Values
As much as Libra will value togetherness, Aquarius will value solitude. This could represent a big problem in their relationship, and Libra partner could seem clingy and not at all independent, while Aquarius might seem like an uncontrollable lunatic who would do anything to destroy all relationships in the world. Still, they both value communication and intellectual strengths enough to talk about their needs and desires, and this should help them overcome their differences.
Aquarius & Libra Shared Activities
Aquarius will want to do anything, really, for as long as their life doesn’t fall into a boring routine. Libra will have trouble deciding what they want to do and this could drive their partner crazy. If something can launch Aquarius into the orbit it’s the lack of spontaneity and Libra can sometimes be the opposite of spontaneous. These partners could end up in a relationship in which only Aquarius pulls the strings and Libra follows. This wouldn’t really be a good solution for any of the partners, and Aquarius will have to learn to show some patience in order for respect between them to remain intact.
There is a strong understanding between a Libra and an Aquarius partner due to their shared element of Air. Still, it can be quite difficult for their troubled Suns to get along and they will often have difficulty adjusting to each other’s character and finding deep respect for one another. The best cure for any problem in their relationship is usually in time, but with Aquarius’ need for spontaneity they often won’t last long enough for time to mend what gets broken. Whatever their story, they will have a lot of exciting things to live through together and if they fall in love, it would be a shame for a couple such as this one, not to give their relationship a try however it might end.
Aquarius and Leo - Compatibility in Sex, Love and Life

Aquarius & Leo Sexual & Intimacy Compatibility
The attraction is always great in relationships of opposing signs, and it is probably the greatest in a relationship of Leo and Aquarius. Leo is the king of the entire zodiac, and Aquarius seems to be there to bring down the king and fight for independence. Imagine the attraction and the passion between two such strong individuals, lying on the axis of Sun’s rule and detriment.
Their sex life is a struggle, a fight and an incredible experience for both. Liberating and yet warm and passionate, sensual but still interesting. When they find true emotion, Aquarius might actually end up respecting the king. The beauty of their sex life is in things they can learn about their bodies, their confidence and the way they look at the act of sex. Through the struggle of insecurities and forced liberation, these are two partners to form a strong connection by a simple act of gravitation that the Sun has over Uranus.
Aquarius & Leo Trust
Everything seems clear in a relationship between Leo and Aquarius when we look at it from a distance. However, these signs represent the axis of Neptune’s exaltation and fall, and they will almost always have the challenge of trust and the search of truth in their relationship. Although they could find incredible understanding and freedom for both partners, usually when they separate they realize how little they have actually known about each other and how little trust they shared in the first place.
Aquarius & Leo Communication and intellect
Both Leo and Aquarius are heroes in their own way. While Aquarius is reaching for heroism, looking for ways to set free from repression, Leo was born a hero and sometimes doesn’t even know it. If they end up fighting for the same cause, they could turn down entire governments and use their incredible force to change anything in the world. To get there, these two would have to stop the battle they have with each other, because energy can be scattered on their unnecessary fight for dominance in a relationship.
Leo is a sign ruled by the Sun and has the ability to give clarity to any situation. No matter how confused they might be or how lost they may sound, if you take a closer look to the time spent with them, you will see that they’ve brought clarity in your life. Aquarius, on the other hand, understands the necessity of change and they seem to carry around a spark to ignite and excite any possible situation that they find worthy. This can be irritating to many, especially Leo, but in fact it is a necessity of liberation we all carry within.
Aquarius & Leo Emotions
Leo is exactly what Aquarius needs to find love. It is a strange thing how they find each other, on the grounds of their former relationships, to liberate and shine as if they have been searching for one another for many lifetimes. While Leo is the Sun, Aquarius is a lightning and it usually comes out on a rainy day. This is exactly what they need to understand – there is a time for both of them to shine and they don’t endanger each other’s chance to do so.
When Leo falls in love, the entire world can feel it. The warmth pours out from the center of their being and one has to be blind or senseless not to pick up the signals. Aquarius can hide their emotions much better and often has trouble expressing and acknowledging how they feel. It is a good thing that Leo’s warm emotional nature will melt even the coldest of hearts and there will be no safer place for Aquarius to share their love than in these fiery arms. The only thing that can endanger their emotional relationship is their everlasting ego battle and they should both pay attention not to be too proud to let go to love.
Aquarius & Leo Values
The deepest value they share is the value of individuality. Someone with a strong character, who knows exactly what she or he wants, cannot stay unnoticed by Leo or Aquarius. Although they will not agree on many other things, this is the one that could connect them strongly, because they are both such strong individuals in the eyes of each other.
Aquarius & Leo Shared Activities
While Leo shines, Aquarius likes everything shiny. The need Leo has to show off might be a bit disturbed by Aquarius’ tendency to show what others don’t want to see. From a different perspective, this should help Leo feel more free and confident, although it might not seem so in the beginning. They will both like to show off, each in their own way, and it is only important for them to set the territory for both partners to be expressed. Just like the Sun and the lightning don’t go together, Aquarius should take over on a rainy day, in a depressive crowd or in places where they both feel as if they would drown. This is where Leo needs to give in and let their partner rule the sky if they are planning to keep the relationship going. There will be enough regular, shiny chances and days with no clouds for Leo to rule.
Signs of Leo and Aquarius combined represent the ultimate creativity, famous scientific discoveries, the first man in an airplane and the first man on the Moon. Imagine what these partners could do together if they let each other lead the way when the territory of their rule is in front of them. They both need to learn to let go of the image they have about themselves and about each other, or they won’t get very far stuck in their unnecessary ego battle. Warm and cold, hearted and smart, nuclear gravitation and vacuum in space, it cannot be easy to mend their differences or form a stable, loving relationship. The best thing they could do is find a cause they will support together. This would give them a focus on the outer world and allow them to deepen the inner emotional world of their relationship while fighting outside of it.
