The Home Computer of 2004: As Imagined in 1954

Photo and caption of Rand's 'home computer' mock up made in 1954. RAND deserves credit for projecting that the device will be "easy to use." The rest should be a caution to 'futurists' who publish their views of next-generation advances.

I've since run into a pretty strong argument that this photo is a composite of several different photographs - and 'not as advertised.'

Still, predictions of next-generation advances (or lack of same) are dicey at best.
