|"there was a movie that came out a couple of years ago called "red planet" I belive, with Val Kilmer as a "Space Janitor" and Carrie Moss. In this movie they used a portable computer system they called a "HHC" (Hand Held Computer) that used a roll out display as well as voice input."

|"Also, this concept was shown on the TV series "Earth: Final Conflict" and in the film "Red Planet"."

|"I should probably read the other comments BEFORE posting my own, huh? Hey, well, nobody's mentioned the "updatable newspaper" from "Minority Report"!"
(Chris Johnston (cljohnston108) 9/24/2005 9:21:03 AM)
|"Chris - Yes, I have that one here. You're referring to the homeopape from Minority Report and other stories. But you left out what is probably the earliest example - personalized news from Hugo Gernsback's 1911 classic Ralph 124c 41 +."
(Bill Christensen 9/24/2005 10:52:07 AM)
|"Sorry, I forgot that the site's called "TechNOVELgy".
I was referring to the movie version of "Minority Report", in particular the scene on the train where a passenger recognizes Cruise's character after seeing the live update on his "homeopape".
Haven't had the opportunity to read any of Gernsback's famous work."
