Tomorrow's World - Elliot Light-Pen

Malcolm Lyall-Watson reports for 'Tomorrow's World' on the computer interface of the future - a 'light-pen' that can draw directly onto a phosphorescent computer screen. The device, developed by Elliots, will be of immense benefit to industrial design.

Malcolm Lyall-Watson soon abandoned his first name to become 'Lyall Watson'. A prolific author - his best-known work being 'Supernature', an investigation into ESP and the paranormal - he also introduced Uri Geller to a nation of eager spoon-benders in the 1970s.
