UX from Science Fiction

Neato! Check this out: "Make It So" analyzes user interfaces from over a dozen science fiction movies in a modern UX (user experience) perspective.

Whats cool is the author goes in depth analyzing one of my favorite films: "The Fifth Element!" It seems that many of the interfaces for things like the Ultimate Weapon,  cigarette dispenser, and even nail polish applicator are very well designed.

The smashing costumes were also practical and awesome at the same time.

Compare that to "Barbarella," "Prometheus" or even some Star Trek movies, "The Fifth Element" still knock them out of the park when it comes to the practicality of using space suits and fancy weapons.
