Photo: Seppo Mustonen using Elliott in 1961.

Many people may think that in this picture Seppo is sitting at a small desktop computer. Actually that equipment is merely a 'binary' keyboard used for operating the computer. A part of the actual computer (being of the same size as a typical wardrobe cabinet) can be seen in the background.

Graph: "Origin of species", which demonstrates different shapes developing from a circle (S.Mustonen 1976). See also Survo book p. 331 and Survo Graphics gallery.
