I was always confused about computers in the Jetsons. They looked and were controlled like no computer I grew up with. When I asked about it, my Mother informed me that computers used to be more like the one George operating it. I have since seen some old machines, and have seen footage in action. Every time I see one I am endlessly fascinated by how much more “mechanical” they seem.
I would love to know what this machine would have sounded like while being operated.
