Aside from the Bill Nye look-alike to talk you through things it would seem we're pretty close to this 1987 vision of the future from apple

Try watching this video with Starship's "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" playing. Freaky.



And I would say that the concept portrayed in the video is pretty close to what we have today. Although I will say off the record that I have no general understanding of anything conceptually made in the 1980s. Unlike today, stuff that was a concept product doesn't make sense. Maybe it's because I was born in 1991?

We all need a imprisoned bow tie wearing man in our computers. Yeah with the touch screen and stuff...but would be nice if you could just talk to the computer and have it do complex task for you.
