One of my co-workers just dropped off a fun little thing at my desk -
a McGraw-Hill publication from 1979, the "Instructo Paper Computer"...
it's like the Bell Labs Cardiac.  I'd never heard of the Instructo
before.  Digging around on the 'net only found this...

Shaap here on the list?)

In case this spawns a CARDIAC thread... start here ->

Fiber-based computing... big fun!
