This is for listing Sci Fi movie stuff they got right or wrong. Extra points for the older the movie, the accuracy of what they got right and the humor of what they got wrong. Notable dicotomies extra points. And make a case for why they got it right or wrong.
The first obvious one is the comunicator. They didn't get the usefulness right. Ours is a whole lot more useful and we got it much sooner than they did. But they did get the frequent loss of signal right.
Get the idea?
2001 they got the flat screen "note book" TV that the astronauts watched their interview on BBC right. They got the timing right too as a lot of people had one by 2001. The space station thay got right and in the sense of timing the one in the movie was under construction and our real one was under construction in 2001. But they got the cost of a phone call wrong. Heywood Floyd talked to his daughter for a couple of minutes and the call cost nearly ten bucks. Maybe it was because he used Bell.
TV in the bedroom. Star Trek got that right. I don't know about the rest of you but I have a computer by my bed. Star Trek got that right because their "TV" was apparently also a computer access point.
Notable dicotomy; Many movies had video phones. Now we can have them virtually for free with the web cam but we generally don't want them or if we have them we don't use them much. I think a polite protocol is developing for their use that may result in their being accepted and used more in the future. Also it's still a little awkward to connect having to log into a messenger service like yahoo to make a call.
