Terminal Control

I have always been a huge fan of Science Fiction shows and films, and one of my favourite elements is seeing futuristic control rooms. Computers and workstation terminals with flashing buttons and seemingly important leavers, that give you a feeling that something very technical or scientific is happening. Later the use of  computer graphics in creating Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) took this sense of advanced complexity  to the next level. Giving an impression that what were seeing, could only be found in the future or from an advanced civilisation. I have included below some of my favourite control rooms and graphic displays from my younger years.

Lost in Space

The Jupiter 2  – Possibly one of my all time favourite shows as a child!!! I was a bit disappointed when Land of the Giants took over on channel 4 on a Sunday.
