Starfire (Part 1, 1994)



With the annoucement of Microsoft Surface it seems like a great time to reflect on similar technologies projected in 1994 for the year 2004. Part one of the Sun Microsystems video Starfire sets the scene with an unfortunate reference to Princess Diana and then gives us a glimpse of the user interface to come.

There are eight parts to this video, so stay tuned.

Apple's Grey Flannel Navigator (1988)


Of all the paleo-futuristic concept videos we've looked at in the past four months, the future depicted in Grey Flannel Navigator may have been the most accurate. Granted, it's the safest but computer networking and ordering pizza through your computer was pretty visionary for 1988. The assumption that we need an image of a person as an interface seems to be where most of these videos fall down.

Below are all three parts of the 1988 Apple concept video Grey Flannel Navigator. Thanks again to Keith C. for the video.

The video above is part 1 of Apple's futuristic concept video Grey Flannel Navigator. It was produced in 1988 and has a tone similar to other videos we've looked at by Apple and AT&T. There are three parts to this rarely seen video, so stay tuned. Many thanks to Keith C. for this great paleo-future find.
