The computer will be easy to use...

I found the above image online this morning and I just had to post it. In case some of you are unable to make out the words, it reads:
Scientists from the RAND corporation have created this model to illustrate how a “home computer” could look 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 teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.

Amazing no? My favorite part is that giant monitor hanging on the wall. Also, I really want to know what the hell the giant double steering wheel is for.

Haha. That is amazing. I, too, was wondering what the wheel is for.

What in the world.
