artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

the ‘Star Trek’ world has arrived

I’ve been waiting for it all: The transporter. The easy interstellar travel on a luxurious starship. The end of poverty and the money economy. The fully functional positronic androids who like cats. The sex with hot aliens with funny noses.

And today, a little part of my dream came true. Apple announced the iPad.

No, really, look:
Star Trek: The Next Generation:

Coming this spring to an Apple store near you:

This has been your OMG Thought for the Day.

    How long before someone writes an App that mirrors a Star Treck pad?

  • JoshDM

    Yeah, I figured you’d appreciate Mac’s iPad.

    *say it*

  • *grin*
    I’d be temped to buy one JUST to run a PADD skin. B)

  • I’m still holding out for the Holodeck.

    IMO, we’ve been living in the Star Trek universe ever since we invented doors that open when you approach them.

    I’m still holding out for the Holodeck.

    Ah the Holodeck, which I’m sure will appear in alien anthropological glossaries as “the last invention of the now-extinct homo sapien“. :)

    Sorry, but the automatic doors in the real world don’t make the right sound to be Star Trek doors. Which is why I always try to time that subtle Jedi hand gesture at just the right moment as I approach them, so it’s as if I used The Force to open them.

    Yeah, it’s geeky, but cheaper than owning a closet full of unopened action figures in the original packages.

    My god. My daughter and I are not alone! :-D

    I’m ashamed to admit that I always do this at stoplights whose patterns I know well.

    I just glare at the door (or the sensor), so it’s like the door opens because it knows what’s good for it.

    I’m still waiting for giant screens like that which can roll up or shrink down into the size of a makeup compact or keychain or something.

    But I have to admit that every new generation of smartphone makes me think more and more of the ones they had in Earth: Final Conflict. …Especially when I’m using mine to record notes in class by taking pictures and video of the whiteboard.

  • Keith

    The iPad makes me think of what happened to the nose at the end of Woody Allen’s “Sleeper.” Looks like an iPhone got tossed under a streamroller and it ended up flattened out larger.

    Sounds a bit like Zoe’s computer sheet from Caprica.
