frog design's Apple tablet design from the early 1980s


Photos of frog design's early tablet prototypes for Apple from the 1980's.

The "Bashful" — named after the story-book elf in Snow White — was created alongside the Apple IIe as an extension of the Snow White design language that frog Founder Hartmut Essligner helped create for the company in 1983. Concepts for this early pre-touch tablet included one with an attached keyboard and one with a floppy disk drive and convenient handle for maximum portability. An attached stylus helped the user interact with the screen. One frog/Apple tablet concept also included an attached phone.
