The Atari Touch Tablet was a well designed and brilliant idea.
Giving the user the ability to use a virtual sheet of paper and pen, they
could draw, drag and drop, paint and erase images with the included Atari
Artist program. Perhaps given more time, the Touch Tablet could
have been used for many other innovative ideas and perhaps vertical market
applications. The Atari CX-77 Touch Tablet was designed by
Tom Palecki formerly of Atari's Industrial Design group. Tom
still has his own personal CX-77 on display in his office at Pear Design,
Inc. in California.
