A History of Portable Networked Computing

1966 – Tricorder science fiction, multipurpose portable networked computing and sensory device 1968 – Xerox PARC GUI & TCP/IP Alan Kay : a “personal, portable information manipulator” was imagined Xerox PARC in 1968, and described in his 1972 paper as the “Dynabook”. 1969 – ARPAnet started (Advanced Research Projects Agency network). It was opened to public users in the late 1970s and many universities and large businesses went on-line. 1975 – IBM 5100 $8,975 (BASIC with 16KB) to $19,975 (BASIC+APL with 64KB) Discontinued: 1978, CPU IBM PALM processor clocked at 1.9MHz. Small professional market place. 1977 – Apple II 1977

The Jungle's Edge - Adventure Beyond Time

Jungle’s Edge

“The Jungle’s Edge,” In game assets from Adventure Beyond Time. Creation of this piece of the game world went a very long way toward establishing the Beyond Time universe. The shape of the submarine was directly inspired by the obelisk in 2001: A Space Odyssey. The initial development concept of Adventure Beyond Time had the early game world bathed in the orange glow of the evening sun. During creation of this the Submarine Jungle Edge Image a different sky temperature was attempted. The render immediately informed the design of the island: wet and misty. Furthermore, the soil around the base

The Horizon Project

“Periodically through the course of history, opportunities to advance human knowledge and capabilites have arisen and thrust themselves before the eyes of our species which but just brief time earlier were entirely unimaginable. The taming of fire, the domestication of plant and animal, the discovery of a helio-centric universe, human flight and robot butlers are no less spectacular than the possibilities which await us now. The question which we are posed: Will human-beings become a multi-dimensional organism? Or, will we waste complacently into oblivion within the confines of the backwater 3.5 dimensional structure we have called home for so very
