KiddiKomp <1970>

I immediately started working up a new version of the KiddiKomp [a new prototype of the notebook computer based on the Dynabook] that could be made in enough quantity to do experiments leading to the user interface design for the eventual notebook. Bob Barton liked to say that "good ideas don't often scale." The KiddiKomp would be built with a Sony "tummy trinitron" and would use a coarse bit-map display and the Flex Machine's rubber tablet as a pointing device.
