Gazing into the Future from 1954 to 2004

This is from a 1954 issue of Popular Mechanics Magazine.

The caption below the photograph reads:
Scientists from the RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a “home computer” could look like in the year 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use.

Does anything on that monstrosity look easy to use?? Thanks to CLarsen for the submission!
