Was this from the same site as this "home computer"?

Is the steering wheel to raise and lower the control rods for the nuclear battery?

It's a photoshop, but that's what popped into my head when I thought of "futuristic engineering"

I've actually worked -- just for 2 days -- on a hardcopy terminal just a little smaller than the one pictured, when our VT220 terminal went on the blink and there wasn't a spare immediately available. And data had to be entered and a printed report had to go out like yesterday.

That was in the mid 90s.

I still like the idea of a nuclear battery for the home.

You can order 1 MW E-Cat reactor from professor Rossi. It will be shipped as soon as few unimportant remaining technical difficulties are resolved. Now, that's what I call futuristic engineering!
