Hardware, Embedded Systems "These drawings date from 1982 (thirty years ago). Alan Kay had just become the Chief Scientist at Atari and he asked me to work with him to continue the work I started at Encyclopedia Britannica on the idea of an Intelligent Encyclopedia. We came up with these scenarios of how the (future) encyclopedia might be used and commissioned Glenn Keane, a well-known Disney animator to render them. The captions also date from 1982." Pretty cool.

Obviously, that's a good community design or previous design that would put any other wannabe to shame !

You mean, the future that described half the human population in orbital stations and not a chance for computers ?

The art could almost pass as epic cover art like all the Atari cartridges pretty much had.
