Yeah, it's one of the little things they accidentally got right the first time around. Totally missed out on touch-based input (every computer-like device used mechanical buttons, most of them single-function), thought phone booths would still be around, envisioned computers as large mainframe-like devices, etc.

And I'm sure it was accidental. Rear-projection of film onto translucent screens was pretty much the only way to simulate high-resolution computer displays in realtime whel 2001 was filmed (1968). But they really cheaped out on the displays in the '82 sequel.

(And do you remember the computer that Dr. Floyd had with him at the beach?)

I saw that posted recently somewhere.
I think it needs some tires/suspension because its wasting 300hp running times like that.

If that MK2 is actually 900hp (which I don't think it is), it's running some pretty low times, and comes off the line like a slug.

^Those tires seem pretty small to hook up with even 500hp as well. Still a pretty good show.
