All of these images are from a 2009 big-budget Mexican movie called 2033.

The story is a bit of a muddle but it sure has some very fine art direction.

Personally, I don’t think we’ll have translucent desktops in 2033. The desktops will not be see-through at all and the imagery will be indistinguishable from very high-end full-color print. If we had paper printed full-color moving imagery today, we’d freak out at its spookiness.

Also, I think we’ll carry a full supercomputer around on a bracelet or ring and plug it into a bunch of different as-needed screens, such as the one above.

    Looks more like a future Windows Computer to me:
    -Microsoft Surface
    -Ugly icons
    -users looking confused (or should I say flumoxed?).

    Haven’t you been paying attention: Apple is transitioning into a mobile devices company.

    Clearly unrealistic. No modesty panels. No place for the morning joe. No place to hang pictures of cats or employee of the month awards. No place to hide the sneakers and switch to pumps. No place to put flowers (or doughnuts).

    But we will see the touch-pad grow into a full interactive surface with displays at both traditional and drafting table angles. I agree they won’t transparent though (unless they are installed on shop windows).

    On desktops, unlike multi-touch tablets, the interaction surface will be mostly separate from the vertical display which will more likely respond to basic hand signals and where the user’s eye is focused.

    Looking forward to it.

    One problem. No one dresses like that to go to work.
