Human Computer Interaction in Scifi Movies

I admit it — HCI was one of my favorite graduate courses that I took. (*If* I ever go on to work on my doctorate, this is what I’ll go into.) Anyway, I found this interesting paper that analyzes human-computer interfaces found in scifi movies. Very interesting read!

Human Computer Interface in Science Fiction Movies

Science Fiction movies have been a source for speculation about the future of technology and human computer interaction. This paper presents a survey of different kinds of interaction designs in movies during the past decades and relates the techniques of the films to existing technologies and prototypes where possible. The interactions will be categorized with respect to their domain of real-life applications and also evaluated in regard to results of current research in human computer interaction.
