1960s ‘Key Machine’
Cindy Frink, a Video Data Interrogator operator for California’s Department of Motor Vehicles, demonstrates a key machine in the department’s planned computer system at Sacramento, Calif., Oct. 20, 1966.
The operator types all information about licenses, traffic records and ownership into a computer, which stores it on magnetic tape “flakes”. Similar video screens or automatic transcribing machines will be installed in DMV and law enforcement offices in major metropolitan centers. When information is wanted it can be immediately transmitted from the computer center in Sacramento to their offices by dialing a code. (AP Photo)
