Reminds me of a Computer Faire that I was exhibiting at not too long after
the movie released. Had my IMSAI (amongst others) displayed on the table
running Processor Tech 8080 Chess on the display, and a little button on
the rear of the table that, when pressed caused the IMSAI to wake up the
Votrax (under the table) and ask: "would you like to play a game?"

You could identify the paranoid movie goers REAL quickly! (the ones that
jumped the highest or ran the fastest!)
