Before we were all mystified with the magic of widely available touch screens, the best way to interact with a flat surface was through the miracle of the Magic Slate. I would use them so often that I would need a new one every few months (lucky they cost so little back in the day). Because of this, none of my childhood slate survived. I am pretty sure, that I had this very Jetson’s Magic Slate, which makes sense, since the both the Jetsons and the Magic Slate were the most futuristic plaything available at my local 5 and 10.
Wouldn’t Magic Slate be the perfect name for an iPad alternative?
