A home computer

Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year 2004. However, the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface & the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.

My Uncle Al sent me this picture and I thought I’d share, as it is really fascinating. This is how an article in the 1954 edition of Popular Mechanics magazine envisioned home computers in the year 2004.
