I remember seeing the light pen being used in the 1980s and my mind was thoroughly blown. I can only imagine what people of the 1960s thought of this incredible device.
Did anyone else think that light pens would one day be standard issue on all computers? I think I might have even done a book report about light pens when I was in school I was and still am absolutely enamored of them.
Maybe I appreciate the past so much because I am so horrible at predicting the future?
