Went back to retrieve the article and now it's gone......msn always does that runs a story briefly then jumps to the next one, sigh. (Especially if it is not sensational).
Any way, if anyone runs across it some of the art drawn with it was wonderful.
I dabbled with it and found it both mesermizing and frustrating, years ago. First went on sale around the Christmas holidays in 1960. (I did not know that).
Perhaps an early "pioneer" of computer software for creating art......Illustrator, etc?
