Home Computing in 1966? Pretty Much Like Home Computing in 2011

This futuristic clip–supposedly produced in 1966–pretty much nails what home computers would eventually give us: online shopping, e-mail, banking, Webcams, multiple monitors, printers, self-healing Internet, and all.

    Looks like actress Marj Dusay. If it's Marj, this is from that era.

  2. Jasnz Says:

    Yup, Mac is right, so 66 is about right. She also appeared in some Hogan’s Heroes episodes around that time.

  3. Bill Says:

    Yes, that's Marj. And Hogans Heroes is right too. Also around this time she played Kara in what is often called the worst of the original 79 Star Tek episodes, "Spock's Brain". She was also in episodes of about 30 different popular 1970's dramas.

    "What the wife purchases, the husband will pay for through his console".

    Sign of the times.

    A very interesting old clip, We had better all make copies of items like this, with the way our government is crushing our libertiies, like Megaupload, we soon will only be left with data we have recorded on flashdrives and buried where the government loons cannot find it. Keep up the good work.
