Since the first computer was made in the late fifties,

the technology has developed extremely. Computers which took

the place of a living-room then, are now being made in

creditcard-formats. More and more areas are being taken over

by the computer.

    As computers are capable of handling large amounts of

data in a very short time, they are well suited for

wordprocessing. I guess that it won't be long till all the

paper-archives are replaced by magnetic tapes and diskettes. A

diskette can contain much more data than a written page, and

it takes less place! It is possible to get the Norwegian

telephone book on just one diskette.

    In near future, a new area will be taken over by

computers, namely maps. Different routes are stored on one

single compact-disk. Imagine, simply insert the CD into the

CD-driver in your car, and tell the computer where to go. The

rest will be done automatically. This will be a safer, faster,

and more comfortable way to travel.

    Another new area, called "virtual reality" is currently

being tested. This is a way to simulate reality on a monitor.

In order to feel this so-called reality you have to wear

special electronic glasses and an electronic suit. Fastened to

the suit are sensors, which send information to the main

computer. This computer works with the data and displays them

on the electronic spectacles. This is a technique which use

three-dimentional views, therefore the scenery seems

incredibly realistic. If you want to be a boxer, simply change

the scenery on the main computer, and you are in the ring.

    Today, many kids have got video games. You could say

these games are the present's answer to ludo and monopoly. In

a way, it is a great advantage that the kids are being

presented to computors at an early age,...
