40 Hilarious Computer Interfaces Used in Movies

Did you noticed that most of the time, all the user interfaces used in movies are completely different from reality? I mean it’s really strange when you look at an actor who must search something on internet and he’s using an obscure search engine, and not Google, Bing, or Yahoo Search (still alive?). Another case is when he posts something on a Youtube-like page which everybody knows that is fake.

Well, that’s Hollywood: a place where you can zoom for infinity on a bitmap image or you can hack a server using state-of-the-art 3D graphics. In this article you can find 40 hilarious computer interfaces used in many movies from 1986 until now. Also, if you want to see more of them, you should check out this site.
