The idea of the graphic computer, in 1950. “It just went together within an hour or two, about what computers could do,” Engelbart remembers. “Because I’d been a radar technician I knew how radar made images on the oscilloscope, and also how radar electronics could change things on the screen. I knew that if a computer could punch cards or print on paper, it could draw things on the screen.”
