Apple iPad in 2001?

If you've ever seen the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey, then you'll remember the scene of astronauts David Bowman and Frank Poole having a meal and watching the news on their...iPads?

Ever since Apple's latest product introduction, that scene has been nagging at me. With a bit of help from Photoshop, the future past now appears correct to me.

  1. Wow, talk about prescient product placement! That really does look like an iPad! Eerie. And his dinner plate looks like a John Pike watercolor palette! : )

  2. Funny! Glad having found this again as the current fight Samsung vs. Apple has a new direction...

    Maybe the Samsung lawyers have fallen into your fake pic? ;-)

    The "Pads" from 2001 (the movie) are significantly different in my opinion.
    Larger, more 16 by 9 than 4 by 3, and a lot of details on the lower side.
