And all of this in the eighties, before there were ereaders, or even Windows, or Linux.
Yes, I have used a computer for this job, but in a band (standing and trying to read a chart at high speed and having to sing backing vocals between everything else) it would have to be 100% reliable and have a refresh rate in the millisecond range. It will happen, but I won't start burning all my sheet music yet!
