Description

Object is a large plywood panel. At the top is a hole to receive a television monitor in portrait orientation. In the center are two large joysticks and four large toggle switches. Viewed from the back, the joysticks are US Air Force bombing navigational computer parts. The label attached to each joystick housing reads "CONTROL TRACKING TYPE A-2. BOMBING NAVIGATIONAL COMPUTER". Also made by the AC Sparkplug division of G.M. and dated 14 June 57. The joysticks and toggle switches are wired in an amateurish manner to a Centronics connector.
