2001 an iPad Odyssey

I must admit, I have a certain Mr Hyde to thank for this genius spot, but do you remember 2001 A Space Odyssey? Of course…

Well there was a scene in it with two of the astronauts playing around with what looked uncannily like an iPad.

Remember this was 1968 this film was made… Who says sci-fi predictions aren’t coming true?

Anyway upon being alerted to this it reminded me of this… theory that’s been around for a while that Apple is obsessed with 60s culture and all of its products are based on 60s design, especially that of Braun.

Maybe due to this type of retro interest from product designers of the future more sci-fi predictions will start becoming a reality….
