first tablet notebook, multifunctional gaget, opensource electronic device


Dynabook is a tablet notebook concept. It is opensource for software development and the target audiance is children. Alan Key (famous researcher at Xerox Corporation's in 1970's) was conceptualizing the dynabook. The text is mainly talking about the importance of the software language learning process, opensource object oriented interface, multifunctional art instruments like a open source adobe suit in one tablet notebook. The concept of the machine is used by apple later on.

It seems to be the dream machine for opensouce software developers. It has a very innocent image but i think it is the start of the apple industry. Apple was feeding itself with a hippie design tool outfit then turning in to a bigbrother concept.
