We see them in movies pretty often and we gaze like five year old children when a character uses them on screen. These fantasy user interfaces that are present in movies and games are igniting our imagination when thinking about the future.
And it’s a normal thing to be mesmerized by these user interfaces considering that we’re impressed with the design that top notch designers create for phone apps, let alone futuristic designs of not yet invented tech.
In futuristic movies or games, we rarely see an interface for something that we use today, like a phone or a tablet. Instead we see GUIs for dashboards on advanced machinery, holographic displays or various technology.
In most movies, the graphical user interfaces that we see aren’t as interactive as we might want, but there are a few movies for which their designers are taking things to the next level by putting some thought into creating these wonderful graphics and making them actually usable on a certain level.
This makes us wonder if these subsets of a film’s visual effects are what we should expect from the future.
You’ll see in the article screenshots and reels of futuristic user interfaces from a few movies and at the end you have three amazing movies with a lot of UI goodies in them.
