A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.
@Zero_Democracy that keyboard looks both beautiful and a pain to use
@polychrome Yeah I'd definitely swap a big chunky IBM board in there. Concept designers all seem to like awful keyboards.
@Zero_Democracy i can see that they also had issues with making microwave controls intelligible 🙃
@Zero_Democracy wow check out that new Ono-Sendai deck! it has 512KB of core and a Yutani satellite modem built in! you could crack launch codes from here to Haiti!
@Zero_Democracy i dont particularly like nor care for the soviet union but ill give them one thing: aesthetically they made some cool tech
Wow, that keyboard looks an awful lot like some in older sci-fi anime, GitS and the like.
