Star Trek's LCARS in Home Computing
LCARS (Library Computer Access/Retrieval System) panel from Star Trek. 6 years later, a guy has managed to mimic the sleekness of an LCARS interface and integrate it into his home computing. Check out the nerdgasm video after the break.
This is what I built in my home and this video is my own work. Both the computer and the software is self made. The interface is inspired by the LCARS interface from Star Trek.
Shown in this video are:
- Shopping list (Groceries)
- Rain radar
- Train departure times (because the train station is nearby)
- Library & Media player (connected to home cinema set)
- Internet browser
Not shown, but also operational is bluetooth support (notice the Transfer button to send the shopping list to your telephone)
More will be added as I get ideas and time to develop them. Why don't I control my home lights with this? Because the needed hardware costs a LOT and the light switch next to the door is more practical in the end anyway. Maybe some day I will add it just because it is cool.
