Friday Fun on Thursday: The Portable Microfiche Reader!
The author of a 1968 government report (pdf) proposed a portable microfiche reader that is surprising similar in design to modern eBook readers. The device would have been small enough to read mocrofiche on planes, in the office, even in bed, assuming you had nothing better to do in bed. Click on the image (left). See pages 7-13 of the report for specifications.
