It looked like a laptop, microwave and plate in the USSR
• How did the laptop, microwave and plate in the USSR
Modern technology was invented not for one day, and many prototypes of devices existed in the USSR. Yes, even then there were tablet and mobile phone, and a laptop. Does that look a bit different than it is today.
The first Russian Notebook "Electronics MS 1504" saw the light in 1991.
He had a 16-bit processor with a frequency of 4, 77-7, 16 MHz, the RAM of 640 KB, the color palette provided 4 shades of gray. Weighed device 3, 5 kg.
The first prototypes of a microwave appeared in the USSR in 1941, but the war for decades delayed serial production of these devices. Only the production of microwave ovens began in 1978.
The widespread, they have not received, because, first of all, going to a very small batches, and secondly, cost about 350 rubles. (With an average salary of about 200 rubles).
In 1957, when the West has not yet thought about mobile communication, radio engineer Leonid Kupriyanov created the first radiotelephone.
Initially, the device weighed about 3 kg, but Kupriyanov was working on its improvement and achieved volume reduction while maintaining functionality. Screen phone does not have, and the number is dialed with a miniature disk mechanism.
Work on the computer also began in the USSR in the 40-ies of the last century. Use such equipment to research institutes, universities, the workplace.
Personal computers for home Soviet people received only in the 80s.
Game consoles "Electronics", by which the mad children and adolescents beginning of the 90s, began to produce in 1984. As a basis were taken the development of the Japanese Nintendo group, but several of them have adapted. For example, in the original eggs in a basket catches is not a wolf, and Mickey Mouse.
In the early 70-ies in the USSR began producing players who could play music from compact cassettes.
broadcast before the start of the 90 players have not received, as were very expensive - 130 rubles.
In 1988, the same concern "Electronics", which gave the children the wolf with a basket, began to produce microcomputers "MK-90 Electronics" - the prototype of modern tablets. However, the screen in the instrument was not a touch, so that the input data was performed using a miniature keyboard.
Specifications microcomputer was very modest: OP 16 KB and 32 KB of non-volatile memory, but it was worth 3500 rubles. It is clear that these devices are not common.
