Bubble heads, identify this...
 
Someone at work sent this to me, claiming that it was a 1954 mock-up of a computer taken from Popular Mechanics. I laughed, and told him that this was NOT a home computer mock-up, and that I knew exactly what it was.

I thought I would share this with some people who could identify it as well.

O.K., who's first?


Photo deleted in the interest of "sensitivity".

Looks like the maneuvering room. The throttles and some controls that I would rather not identify here because I think they are still sensitive information. Or, it could also be the maneuvering room of a prorotype. I know this picture is floating around on the net, but I wouldn't want to be the one posting it. Some people should know better than posting this picture (especially nucs/officers or even ex-nucs/officers). But then again, what can you expect from f#%$^ nucs and zeros.

Yep, definitely maneuvering. We didn't have a TV (those old guys had it good). I figure there's nothing wrong with this picture as one of the panels (the one in front of which the twidget sits) looks like it has had some things removed. The old guy posing means this is probably a picture intended for distribution. If anyone disagrees, you might want to remove the picture. As usual my panel hasn't changed a bit in 50 years.

Late addition:

Yeah those F#$%ing Nukes. As I recall, there is a mockup in the Smithsonian. A picture of it is in an old issue of "Undersea Warfare" magazine.

I would have a hard time believing that there is anything sensitive in this photo. However, I will remove it in the interest of "sensitivity".
