“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 telescope interface and the Fortran language the computer will be easy to use.”

I must admit that I’m very curious about the function of the steering wheel.

Update: Alas, the image is a fake.

    It seems to have all the functions of a modern computer: keyboard, monitor, printer, mouse wheel…
