Holy shiz! This is some Nostradamus shiz, right here!
Check out this old news report from 1994, focusing on a Knight Ridder think tank - comprised of journalists, designers, and researchers - who together constructed what they then called The Tablet Newspaper…AKA a portable computing device that will "weigh under two pounds" and have a display screen "comparable to ink on paper" that will "blend text, video, audio and graphics"…AKA an effing old-school iPad!
This is so, so wild! Check out The Vision of the Future (above)!
Do U think they had an Angry Birds game to procrastinate with back then?! LOLz!
