FAKE 1954: Take a look into the year 2004!

Back in 1954: Scientists from the RAND Corporation (think tank first formed to offer research and analysis to the United States armed forces) have created the above model (pic) to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year 2004. ;-) I'am just happy they where sooo wrong - just think about how your studio would look like today!

Uups ... just learned that this story is a fake "Urban Legend"!

The picture is actually an entry submitted to a image modification competition, taken from an original photo of a submarine maneuvering room console found on U.S. Navy web site, converted to grayscale, and modified to replace a modern display panel and TV screen with pictures of a decades-old teletype/printer and television (as well as to add the gray-suited man to the left-hand side of the photo). My fault ... ;-(
