Introducing the home computer terminal (1967)

Derek Cooper reports on Europe’s first home computer terminal. Installed into the home of industrial consultant Rex Malik (pictured above), it includes an electric typewriter and can send and receive messages, update his diary and check his bank balance.

Even his four-year-old son Nicholas can use it to work out basic maths problems. Can we expect a computer like this in every home in the future? Time will tell.
