1975: And the Changes To Come

Two Variations of Future Television Sets. On the left, a triple-purpose unit for the housewife, enabling her to watch her children at play or identify visitors at the door or watch her favorite color television program. On the right, a salesman's video-audio tape player, housed in an attaché case, and designed to project visual sales presentations as well as to function as a dictation unit.

    And here I own a portable DVD player not too unlike the idea on the right. The future truly is now!

    Interesting how, despite the advent of computer programming at that time, the idea of a "universal machine" wasn't predicted for the consumer. Perhaps it was just a bit boring to describe a device on which you could do anything you had a program for. Maybe it seemed a bit of a futurology cop-out?

    Although it contemplates Power Point.... ' designed to project visual sales presentations as well as to function as a dictation unit' :-)
