Alright, at this point, weve all seen the movie Iron Man.
(Not sure if this is in the right section)
But we all remember Tony Starks Lab/Computer Station.
How realistic is it to actually build?
I'm not talking an Iron Man suit or his manufacturing robots/Build Station, or even J.A.R.V.I.S.
Just the computer(s), monitors(TVs) & software/OS
Now I've read a couple of threads on here, but nothing really got any where.
Lets go over a couple of key points:
His digital keyboard:
He waves his hand across a platform and a very unique, & special keyboard materializes.
1) First off, how is a keyboard like that built? Is the technology available today?
2) What kind of keyboard setup was that? It wasnt your normal QWERTY Keyboard.
The monitor setup:
Having several monitors is the easy part,
But, it seems that they all were perhaps touchscreen?
3) Are there monitors out there that large that are touch screen like that?
4) What about the pen/pointer/mouse he was using to click and drag items to other monitors or work stations?
Is this actually real? Or is that just a movie prop?
There also were some type of gloves, or fingertips that he was wearing while utilizing his 3-D workstation that allows him to grab and work with applications and exploded items...
5) Are these gloves/fingertips possible? (making them bluetooth would be ideal obviously)
Then there was his table top, 3-D workstation.
I know microsoft has some technology out there like this,
6) But is it something that is obtainable, perhaps even to make yourself with out spending 42 million dollars?
7) And what about the 3-D application on his table top workstation?
8) Is there actually software out there available that allows things to become 3-D like that, and also allow for "exploded" views of things?
Now I also like the "Black Liquid Glass" look of his OS.
I've read where his OS was perhaps all designed on Linux (but why wouldnt more people know about it here if it were?)
I have a similar theme on my desktop, via the pics attached, but I need to incorporate the "liquid" aspect of it in.
I have found something similar on a Compiz-Fusion Forum called "Top" or "Htop"...
It seems it was only for the terminal, and doesnt have a defined "border" to show it as a separate application,
But, is there any way to incorporate these two screen shots into one type of overall theme?
Taking my "Black Glass" theme and melting it with this "Top"/liquid feature/look?
