1987 Apple Video Shows Concept Knowledge Navigator



knowledgenavigator This has been a week for flash back to the past videos. First we had this on Tablet PCs, now Google Blogoscoped has hit the way back machine to offer up this concept video from Apple to show off the Knowledge Navigator. This 1987 concept video was apparently meant to inspire engineers within Apple to move in this direction. With a touch screen, apparent instant search capability, and communication capability, it is interesting that many of these ideas exist today. Check the video after the jump.


Could you see this in a Netbook or Tablet today? I certainly could.

    Many ideas – yes, but main gist here is ability of computer to maintain a dialogue with the user. Not just read aloud texts or make instant search… Answer questions and ask in its turn — that is the key, and no PC (Tablet or not) do it now…
