A smarthome concept that wasn't absolute hell: the mid-80s Soviet SPHINX project, based on the idea that there would be a central, modular PC and appliances in the house like the TV would connect to it via the LAN. Everything was designed to be easily-expandable or pared-down as needed. It was purely conceptual but the props looked cool as hell.

@polychrome Yeah I'd definitely swap a big chunky IBM board in there. Concept designers all seem to like awful keyboards.


@Zero_Democracy @polychrome Keyboards have been solved well enough it's hard to look future while also looking capable of use.

Maybe some of those split tilt-ergo'd ones?
