1954′s Home Computer for 2004

“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.  Alss the scientes readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years rom now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems.  With the teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.”

We now call the teletype interface a “monitor”.  I really enjoy the big stearing wheel.  I have no idea what it is for, but I want one for my computer.
