Europe’s First Home Computer Terminal was Terrifyingly Loud

I Love you Computer Terminal

The man in bed, his head resting ever so close to this mechanical marvel then BOOOOOM, It starts it mechanized clicking and clacking. The gentlemen slowly reaches over, not even alarmed at the sound (maybe because he is dead already?) Perhaps I am the sensitive type, but boy would this thing have scared the cheese out of me every morning.

I like to consider myself “technology-forward”, but had I seen this report back in 1967, I would have doubted the future of an interconnected world.
