The Interact Home Computer was a rare and very early (1979) American home computer made by Interact Co. of Ann Arbor MI.[1] It sold under the name "interact home computer". Only a few thousand were sold before the company went bankrupt. Most were sold by the liquidator Protecto Enterprizes of Barrington, IL through mail order. Later on the design was sold to a French company, and re-branded as the "Victor Lambda" for the French market.
