What if Integrated Circuits were not Invented? July 28, 2006

Posted by ionicflux in Science.

Can you imagine on how a personal computer could look like if integrated circuits were not invented? Here’s a picture which

was taken on 1954 by the Sperry Rand Corporation (the company who made the first computer – UNIVAC) which they predict on

how a computer could look like on 2004. LOL 😛

“Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a “home computer” could look like 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.”
