Here’s my version of the “iPAD” 22 years ago. I submitted this computer tablet concept to UNISYS Design Competition in 1988 and won honorable mention: Docking station with a tablet and digital pen/scanner.
I guess I should’ve applied to Apple instead of Digital Equipment Corporation back then (DEC was bought out by COMPAQ - remember them?)
Now, I’ve applied to Apple for a Trademark Counsel position. I hope I’m not too late to the party!
