Alan Alda used an Atari Touch Tablet and you should have too

Blade Runner...one of my all-time favorite movies. It's cool to see Atari splashed in the backgrounds...sadly a future that never was...only 4-5 years to catch up to that movie's time frame...will we have flying vehicles and Androids in time? I have the original and directors cuts on VHS, Laserdisc and the final cut on DVD. And an HD version of the final cut I recorded to DVR off Direct TV. I've only watched it about 200 times...still got a few hundred more to go before I ever get sick of it.

Ahh yes, I very much have great fond memories of the Atari Touch-Pad, trying to figure as a kid, how the hell did it know where my brush was on the pad on the TV?. lol. I created some cool images with the Atari Touch-Pad and a copy of Kola-Paint Happy days ;)

 

shame that this was over 30 years ago now..but yes, if Alan Alda was man enough to take Atari's Cheque then it had to be worth it! :)

At least in that picture the Atari system is all hooked up with cables running out the back, etc., not some "photo-op" shot with a fake picture on the TV screen. I think Alan is actually using it, if even only long enough to scribble on the touch tablet and have the picture taken!

 

Alan Alda- As Hawkeye: " I could have used one of these at the 4077th! For what, I don't know, but I'm sure Frank would have protested, and Hot-lips too, and that's all that matters!"
