The NEET Collection

These exhibits are owned by The National Exhibition of Entertainment Technology (NEET). This project was established by Jason Williams in the mid 1990s to locate, preserve and exhibit early entertainment technology. NEET has now partnered with the Backstage Heritage Collection who are currently finding a way to display and share this equipment.
