Roll on 2004...I gotta get one of these...including the ships wheel.

I think they were a bit out on size though :rolleyes:

That picture is a hoax - according to this -

Analysis: Albeit significantly doctored, what you're actually looking at in the image above is a full-scale mock-up of the maneuvering room of a U.S. nuclear submarine, not someone's conception of a "home computer" as envisioned in 1954

Now that makes sense; I was wondering what all the gages might be for, and the wheel.

Well as it says "could" look like, but what they did not bank on is 50 years from then, scientific progress did not just solve the problems, they chewed it up, spat it out, tweeked a few knobs and put it in a tiny little thing called a microchip.

Fortran was not released until 57, in 54 the initial work just started on a Beta version.

If some guys decide to fake images, at least they should do some Wikipedia reading.

I had a boys encyclopaedia that showed what life would be like in 1984...it showed skyscrapers in New York being buzzed by small two seater planes and a cop on top of a tower directing traffic.It also said any moon rocket would have to be half a mile high to exit the Earths gravity.

Or was that a hoax too?...Nope it was an old book.

Fake or not it points out how incredibly technology has advanced over the last fifty years.
