What's most intriguing about the 2001 publicity picture with the proto-Pad: it was painted having a graphical user display and presumably interface, in the days when no user of computer outside a tiny lab had ever seen one.

In 1960's computers were large behemoths with massive tape banks, drive banks, aggressive text-oriented printers and text displays. Even the simplest video games (earliest graphics) weren't in popular culture until 1977 or so.

That's the funny thing about a lot of sci-fi. They tend to extrapolate from existing tech but due to unforeseen paradigm shifts you end up with these curiously antiquated futures where, say, you have futuristic technology... with console interfaces

Exactly! Nothing of any kind then! Not Even a Laptop , The Intel Processor came to be in1971 3 years after..the Movie Was made. the First GUI was from Xerox ALTO made in 1973 and THE First PDA " like a Tablet" was in 1984 and then the PDA/TABLET Called Newton made in 1987 practically the First Tablet Device even had a laptop version call eMate 300. but in 1968 ? even the though of a Concept is mind blowing all from the mind of Artur C Clarke !

His Vision of the NEWSPAD as what we see it as a PC Tablet of Today Standards

www.technovelgy.com...


So What is going on Here .. ?????

Someone Foreseen the Future , a Time Traveler ? For the Proto Tablet aka in Clarke's Terms NewsPad

and it Does have a GUI interface well from what it looks like .. Flat and thin. bottom Buttons on it Possibly Touch Screen.. and with Standing High & low Temperatures on the moon. and this is the Same Device that is on the Table when Bowman and Poole are Eating Lunch and Watching the News on it. Its the Same Device !

I Would Like to See or Speak to the The Artist of that painting Let alone some of the Crews Members Making the NEWSPAD .. I would to see the explanation ..

A Chess Game in 1968 looking like this ?



Ive Only Seen this on a Commodore 64 or Apple II in the Early 80s..

Well Slayer69 here is Some More Futuristic Ideas of Futurism back before the late 20s


Check this out this page !

Future Passed: When we dreamed of television
www.theverge.com...





In 1912, the French chocolate company Lombart produced a series of promotional cards packaged with their sweets that looked at the futuristic world of the year 2012. One of the cards in the series showed parents in France speaking to their son in an unnamed Asian country through a mechanical telephone-television device.


I would like to see what the Next 100 years Would Look like that's if We make it.. as a Species.

. This is the classic Chicken and Egg question. Did the visionaries shape our future tech, or did some just get lucky that their imaginations just run along where we were going anyway? And Wolfenz, I think we'll make it. We're pretty resilient, although sometimes I don't think we deserve to be..

I think So LOLLIEK .. the Visionary Shaped our Future Sci Fi Writers ! Especially Ever Read Jules Verne From Earth to the Moon ! (1865) after Reading it, Think... Robert Goddard , Wernher Von Braun and NASA ..

From the Earth to the Moon
en.wikipedia.org...

I Would Defiantly Say: Life Imitated Art in this One !

Well I hope We Make it, not Self Destruction, or Leading ourselves people and government into a DYStopian Dark Age..
