Thanks for sharing that, BatVink! That's absolutely brilliant! We all know computers started out pretty primitive, but it's ridiculously hard to find videos on what they actually looked like

I have an original IBM whitepaper from the 1960s that talks about the ability to control a computer using a screen to output information, a typewriter to input information, and move a cursor around the screen by putting an electronic pen on the screen and using white scan lines to locate it.
