The Electronic Book, Radio Shack 1986

Illustration for article titled The Electronic Book, Radio Shack 1986

I wish I lived in the alternate reality where Radio Shack's 'Electronic Book' was a runaway success, Amazon copied their design and every eBook reader was actually a paper book that required a tower PC to operate. [VintageAds via boingboing]
