    this is as old as the internets.

    I wonder what the big wheel is for…maybe that’s the page scroller…. one for up and down, one for left and right.

    Also, I’m pretty sure this guy would shit himself if he saw a laptop and what it could do.

    What’s hilarious is that a 15 dollar calculator has more power than that piece of crap. “Economically unfeasible” my ass.

    This is a shopped version of an engineering control panel from a nuclear sub.

    Bogus. The “monitor” is obviously shopped in. No one in the 1950s was thinking of CRT readouts for computers. The line printer is just as certainly a shopped artifact; the styling on it is closer to a ca. 1970s LPT than the kind of hardcopy output computers in that era were using (typically paper tape or cards; however text could be produced, IIRC, using a device that looked a lot like a retrofitted manual typewriter).

    I have half a hunch that what we’re actually seeing here is part of a submarine control panel put into a museum. That would explain the wheels.

    Huh. Looks like I guessed right.

    Original contest thread here. Look for Lukket. His entry has fooled at least one major magazine (I forget which one). It took a little more than two weeks before Snopes had to debunk it. Also, take a gander at the other entries (at least, the ones whose image hosts are still retaining said entry!).

    Also, how fun the people will have in 100 years into the future, when they see our sci-fi movies 😀
