I recently came across the SUN-Starfire Video, which - if my information are correct - was directed in 1994 and presents SUN's vision for 2004.

I wish texturing a 3D model woulde be that easy as in the movie   Smiley

Have fun

One thing which I find funny is that when you look at "in-the-future" movies made in a few decades ago, is that the technological advances/dreams are there, but socialogical aspects always remain stuck in the 'then-current' timeframe. The way the woman and the men interact, the haircuts they have, the clothing, the language... everything still screams "1994! 1994! 1994!".

OT: to those of you running linux... does clicking on the link play the video for you?  I'm booted into my recently installed Ubuntu Linux and all I get is "Totem could not play 'fd://0'"  "There were no decoders found to handle the stream, you might need to install the corresponding plugins" .. sigh...  (I don't want to hijack the thread so PM me if you have the answer.)

I was able to play it with xine. I wonder why you have problems with that file, cos it seems to be a normal mpg it's not some special windows format.

You go girl!

the thing is pritty accurate tbh.

the whole burger thing was a bit off, well a hint towards 1994, well even for 1994 it looks off, a milkshake in a glass? and sure you don't see some stuff right now because they never took in account the abusive user factor.

philips is running user acceptence test on quite some stuff in there. for a 10 year prognosis it's quite accurate, considering this is not simply extending a line. esp. considering those where the overoptimistic days.

just the cornered screen and scanning, hmm I wonder what they have lying on the shelves.

It's harder to read code than to write it. - it's even harder to write readable code.

The gospel of brother Riven: "The guarantee that all bugs are in *your* code is worth gold." Amen brother a-m-e-n.
