​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Episode 73: Future Screens Are Mostly Blue

EPISODE ARCHIVE

This week, I'm playing one of my favorite episodes of the podcast 99% Invisible where host Roman Mars and producer Sam Greenspan look at control panels in science fiction -- the clunky, the elegant, and the just plain baffling. But those user interfaces have one thing in common: they're mostly blue. Chris Noessel and Nathan Shedroff also discuss the real-world lessons designers should take from SF, and they come up with an intriguing theory as to why some of the most risible sci-fi user interfaces may not be so absurd.
