    It is simply amazing what these guys were talking about back in the 90s.
    Check it out and see what they created in 1994: isn't it our lovely iPad? :)

    Nothing really amazing about this; the concept's been around for decades. We just had to wait for the miniaturization technology to catch up.

    What I like is the lab director guy is clearly using a PowerBook Duo Dock on his desk. :)

    ...turn of the century?

    Which century? They were off by 10 years, no biggie. I remember in the late 90s there was talk of computer speeds zooming forward far faster than they have so far.

    Those computers they have in the background make the iPad look like a super-computer. Looks like an LCII behind the guy in the beginning.
