Comment "Invented" the tablet in 1990's? (Score 1) 374

I'm sure I saw someone using a tablet computer in the 1984 (which I'm pretty sure was before the 90's) film "Runaway" starring Tom Selleck. I think this concept might have been around a while longer. As much as Hollywood science makes some people sad, I wonder how many "unique" inventions and concepts appeared some years after a movie.
