Antique Futurevisions

Saw this on Engadget and had to post… If your robotic supercop needs to load a “config.sys” file of any kind, run for the hills!

I love seeing old computer interfaces-of-the-future. In fact, Brandon and I had this idea somewhere between Colorado and St. Louis back in 2004: a compendium of past futuristic computer interfaces with accompanying video clips. Licensing nightmare for sure, but it would be my favorite book. From the steampunk knobs and dials of Le Voyage dans la Lune to the blinking nondescript lights of Star Wars to the gestural interface of Minority Report, it would be a great way to track evolution of the computer interface imagination-space.
