The Best (And Worst) Sci-Fi Computer Interfaces

Science fiction is crammed full of some excellent — and awful — computer interfaces. But, as Chris Noessel explains in this talk, we can learn an awful lot from what we see on screen.

After spending two years watching and analysing sci-fi for a new book, Nosseel has an amazing grasp of the world of fictional computing. This presentation, filmed this August, shows some of his most and least favourite examples — and contemplates how they’ve influenced the way we approach our town tech, too. [BoingBoing]
