It all started in the early 1980's with the introduction of the personal computer... The Commodore VIC-20, Commodore 64, IBM PC, Tandy, and Apple II.
I combined my passions for magic and computers and coined the term "CompuMagic".
I created a computer software program which could do magic... And entertained some kids with it...
Basically the audience would pick a card from a deck of playing cards, randomly, and the computer would guess the card, without me touching the computer. Only the kids would touch the computer. I developed several methods of accomplishing this.
BusinessWeek magazine ran this story in 1982 more than 25 years ago, in which Steve Jobs from Apple appears as well as myself...
Note at this time in 1982 we still used cassette tapes to store data and programs but floppy disks were becoming the standard.
I think all would agree Steve Jobs invented a computer anyone could use and would not need training for... The iPhone :)
