Tour Hollywood’s craziest computer UIs, from ‘2001’ to ‘The Matrix’

One of the great joys of watching most sci-fi movies is checking out the computer interfaces dreamed up by the film’s designers. Usually, the designers don’t have to worry about making it work from a practical perspective as long as it looks futuristic, high-tech, and — above all else — cool. If you enjoy these made-up interfaces as much as we do, you’ll be ecstatic with the link shared today by Wired writer and Waxy.org writer / curator Andy Baio: a server with more than 1,200 screenshots of computer interfaces pulled from a variety of old movies.

    It’s a list of 1200 screenshots. Which would be amazing except for the current state of my Internet connection.
