CARES--the computer assisted radiology reporting machine Vern designed in 1976.

The CARES system automatic generated the text for the radiology report. The radiologist only had to touch the little symbols on the machine screen, NO typing! Vern designed the entire machine, desk, legs, monitor, screen, and touch panel. Touch panels did not exist yet, so he invented it using LEDs (newly invented) and infrared sensors. 1976, for goodness sakes. Previously, every report was handwritten, then hand typed, there were no computers or printers. 1 year before the first apple computer, 4 years before the IBM PC.

The entire project only took 6 months and the development cost was $6,400.

The company I worked for made $3,200,000 from this product. Would have made a lot more, but went out of business in 1980s.
