MorderVonAllem submitted an incredibly cool article about the computers and set design of Star Trek. If you are into that sort of thing, you’re going to really like this one. It says “There are a lot of similarities between Apple’s iPad and the mobile computing devices—known as PADDs—used in the Star Trek universe.
