The Home Computer of 2004

I picked up this picture via Alex Wald's Astromonster Tumblr (highly recommended). It is what the RAND Corporation of 1954 imagined a "home computer" would be like 50 years hence. If you haven't bothered to click the link yet, this is your cue to do just that.

In looking at this photo, one thought is paramount in my mind. Namely, where is the steering wheel for my computer? I feel cheated by progress.
