Back to Childhood in UI Design Jul 2011

Here is the video of my presentation at Hyperkult: Back to Childhood – Infantilization of UI Design. After the talk Ivan Sutherland pointed out that the TX-2 was just build to prove the concept of a computer based on transistors. The four black knobs below the screen where not build in specific for Sketchpad; they rather controlled directly the value for four memory registers that Ivan used for scrolling and zooming the image on screen.
