1984: Super Computer In Color!

Radio Shack advertised this "Super Computer" in 1984. It was color, and you could program it in BASIC.

I’m so old that when I was a kid, we had BASIC in our math books. We never actually did those exercises, but we could have, and we did learn just enough BASIC in computer classes to realize that computers were very, very stupid and had to be given very, very exact instructions or they would do the computer equivalent of running into a wall over and over again.
