A prototype of a Cumma Metawriter kiosk circa 1984. The idea was to use reuseable cartridges in a coin op. Retailers don't have overstock that was a serious concern, and consumers get selection and reduced price. Pretty ugly story concerning Nolan Bushnell, the penchant for not wanting to credit people below the top that pervaded more than one industry, and this kiosk, but you can read and decide for yourself if you search for john michael battaglia interview on digitpress. Battaglia wrote manuals and boxcopy for Atari for a time. He died a few months ago.
