A perfect illustration of how bad all so-called experts, including top scientists, are at predicting the future, this is a funny picture of what a scientist in 1954 thought a home computer would look like in 2004.
Update 1: This picture may be a hoax, showing a nuclear ship's controls and not an actual imagined "home computer."
Update 2: Snopes.com has debunked this as a fake picture; but acknowledges that it does represent what many people back in 1954 did envision a home computer would look like.
