2001:A Technology Love-Affair

A still from 2001:A Space Odyssey. The pilot area of the moon transport, showing instrument set-up. Kubrick understood that his audience would be fascinated with the nuts and bolts of space transportation 33 years into the future, so he would include sequences that would allow one to marvel at the futuristic designs. No toggle switches. No dials. No needle guages. Lots of computer displays. Convincingly rendered,

Great work, Stanley.

Many Thanks to Monster Man
