The article goes into how early computers were so expensive but then other competitors stepped in to make their own laptops like Apple. Saito’s parents would budge and buy him his first ever computer, which the future businessman grew addicted to. Saito would then learn how to take apart a computer and put it together at a young age. He then worked with Sony and made a fingerprint scanner for computers. The scanner is even used in phones today. The success of this project would lead to the acquisition of I/O.
