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 The phone, the modem, the rad disk drives, it's so good
@BestGirlGrace The thing that really gets me is a PC being a server, minus the Chromecast bullshit.
@Zero_Democracy Actual, good P2P networking with just phone lines? Rad as hell. Slowly moving to ethernet and wireless as tech improves, because it's modular.
