Der Metropolitan “Astra-Gnome” von 1956


Das Astra-Gnome “Time and Space Car”, ein Konzept des Industriedesigners Richard Arbib, schaffte es im September 1956 auf die Titelseite des Magazins Newsweek und auf die International Auto Show in New York. Arbib modifizierte dafür den 1955er-Kleinwagen Nash Metropolitan. Das Bubble-Car war seine Vorstellung davon, wie ein Auto im Jahr 2000 aussehen würde.

Der Geist steht über den Dingen






MIND OVER MATTERS

Life’s full of little problems.

Everyone faces them… the business-man trying to figure out current inventory or accounts receivables. The home cook who wants to cut down a recipe for 8 to serve only 5. Or the language student trying to learn the difference between “gesundheit” and “gemutlichkeit.”

Now there’s an easy and very affordable way to solve these and other little problems in life.

It’s the inexpensive PET™ (Personal Electronic Transactor) home computer, by Commodore.

The PET’s like having a bookkeeper, cook, language tutor, inventory clerk and playmate. All rolled into one.

And the PET’s as easy to get along with as it is affordable.

After only a few hours introduction, just about anyone can put the PET’s remarkable mind to work solving problems, storing information, operating appliances, answering the phone, planning diets and playing games of skill. At home. Or in the office.

In fact, it’s so much fun to operate, soon you’ll be finding all sorts of new ways to use the PET of your choice. Complete systems are priced from just $795.

Now, where can you meet this amazing creature?

At any one of over 80 Byte Shops or other quality computer stores nationwide.

Besides stocking the PET line, most dealers also sell all the programs and other software you’ll need to keep your PET active for years to come.

The PET personal home computer, by Commodore.

Let it mind over the matters in your life.

Commodore Business Machines, September 1979

Das Ende der stillen Post



Combining the ease of telephonic communication with the awesome speed of mail, the maker of typewriters Smith-Corona introduced the Mail Call back in 1967:




Announcing: The end of the silent letter

Now you can really “hear” from those you miss the most.

A son in service. A child in college. A fiance in another city.
Parents in your old home town.

Mail Call - Smith-Corona’s revolutionary new concept in long-distance correspondence - lets you receive and send letters with all the warmth and joy of the human voice.

WHAT IT IS. Mail Call is a handsome, compact, combination recording and play-back unit. It comes in a set of two. One for the person you’ll write to, one for you. With a Letterpack(TM) cartridge for your letters.

EASY TO USE. As easy - and as personal - as a telephone call, without the static or the cost! Simply slip in the Letterpack cartridge. Turn the knob to RECORD. Talk away. Stop and start at any point. You can erase everything and start again. Even put the whole family on one letter. When you’ are done, slip the cartridge out; mail in an ordinary envelope. When you receive a taped letter, insert it in your unit, turn the knob to PLAY, and listen.

MAIL CALL GOES ANYWHERE. Each Mail Call unit is lightweight, fully-transistorized, battery-operated, portable. Letterpacks for 3,6, or 10 minute letters are available and re-usable time after time. Extra cartridges are inexpensive.

HEAR FROM THEM MORE OFTEN. If you’re not hearing often from loved ones far from home, Mail Call is your answer. Sets of two and extra Letterpack cartridges are on sale at Smith-Corona dealers, appliance and hardware stores. With Smith-Corona’s 5-year guarantee. The talking letter is here.

Just say it - and sent it with “MAIL CALL” by Smith-Corona. Less than $70.00 a pair (batteries not included)

(70 Dollar 1967 entsprechen etwa 450 Dollar heute).

Die UNIVAC im Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory




“The UNIVAC at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory had a large console with a series of switches that could be set to address each of the machine’s 1,000 words of memory. Once set, the contents of that memory location would be displayed on the console’s oscilloscope. An electric typewriter could be used to direct the machine and was useful for debugging. The largest data system was a set of ten tape units, designed to read and write backwards and forwards. These served as an expanded main memory, allowing larger data volumes and even larger programs than would fit in the small amount of main memory.”
