Memory lane.
Tektonix used to have 4010 and 4014 graphical display terminals using storage tubes as their display memory. They were like an electronic etch-a-sketch. Clear the screen then draw on it much like a line plotter. Used them a-lot in Grad school as terminal for mini-computer (rack mounted Data General Eclipse). Computer graphics was becoming a core course for computer science and math majors at the time. Anyway, point is that this was early days of graphical displays that did not require lots of expensive dedicated raster memory (those types of displays were very expensive and used mostly by CGI business (movies).
