Prediction of the Computer from 1954

Thursday, August 16, 2007

How do you think the home computer will look like in 50 years?

In 1954, the RAND, a nonprofit global policy think tank first formed to offer research and analysis to the United States armed forces, predicted the computer would look like in 50 years (2004)...

How wrong were they?! This 'prototype' looked like a submarine simulator or something out of Flash Gordon. :P

Apparently the photo is fake. The 'television' in the upper corner has been inserted from the original. When the photo was taken it was just some guy who stood next to a machine. Someone later picked it up online somewhere and added the storyline that this was a prediction of the size of home computers for the future...
