As the technology of the early era of computers became accessible for the average person, several themes that were part of the 1950s came into focus such as attention and vigilance, motivation and boredom, memory, and the development of information technologies, etc. The success of the development of information technology started to be recognized by the 1950s as the information revolution began, and it was common for one to be referred to as a computer [ 12 ]. The development of information technology could be divided into two parts: hardware and software. Computerized automobile information systems appeared in the mid-1950s based on mechanical engineering. The human role and the technologies available for the average person (and the number of systems to be handled) in the 1950s were less than they would be in the 1970s and 1980s. However, information technology in the 1950s had many features (e.g., large capacity, interfaces with many systems, screen size) that would be expected by present-day users (e.g., smartphone). Early computer systems could be divided into two main categories: calculating systems and memory systems. Calculating systems were also known as automation systems. The earliest calculating system was the IBM punchcard system, the first automated highway system was created in Germany in 1950, and the first automated tollbooth was built in 1952. Memory systems include devices used for retaining data for later use. These devices were mass-produced by the early 1950s and included decks of cards, magnetic tape, hard disks, floppy disks, and punched tape. The largest memories in the early 1950s were computer memory systems. In the late 1950s, personal digital assistants (PDAs) began appearing and became widely used as calculator-storing devices and with smartphones, they are used to access available information. However, many people still carry a pocket-sized calculator for simple calculations, as well as a traditional LED calculator-storing device such as an abacus.
In the 1960s and 1970s in North America, the use of a cruise control became popular on luxury vehicles to reduce the driver workload. In the 1990s, cruise controls were included on lower-priced automobiles as standard equipment. Before coming to Germany, I never thought about cruise control as a feature, but when I was learning the different buttons on the center console to operate the cruise control, I asked my instructor what this button was for.
The German term die Fauteuilaille was first used to refer to a chair in 1843 by a French writer and playwright Louis Gabriel Ambroise Dulaure (1790-1868). Dulaure was at the time the leader of a royalist movement that had fallen out with the king of France and was thus without a home. As a result, in the mid-1840s, he traveled between meetings of the Belgian, French, and German royalist groups, carrying his Fauteuilaille along with him. He was often so averse to making change in any seat when changing trains that he would go to the lavatory in his Fauteuilaille and then change into a different Fauteuilaille without taking time for a change of clothes. He was often subjected to the ridicule of fellow travelers, because of the way he changed while sitting in the lavatory in his Fauteuilaille. His suiters or opponents called him the Barber-Surgeon, because he used his Fauteuilaille as a seat while riding in a bath chair. There is a play by Alfred de Musset based on Dulaure’s travels. The play was the basis for a French opera by Pauline Viardot-Garcia and Philippe Gille, Dulaure (1962), called “ . [ 18 ].
