Ever wonder where software developers (eh-hmm) and the technology elite get their ideas for interface design?

It may very well be the last episode of Battlestar Galatica or James Bond. It’s no secret sci-fi has been an inspirational motif of futuristic possibilities, but the guy behind a lot of it may be the one to credit… or blame.

His interfaces have been featured in movies such as The Island, Mr and Mrs Smith, The World is Not Enough, The Bourne Identity, and many more. Here’s a video that shows how far beyond blinking lights this has gone. HD version here.
