Impressive Nerdery: Star Trek Home Computer [Video]

Via Reddit, who’s strongly against the stereotype that Trekkies are sad, lonely slobs, even if it’s true 93% of the time.

    Uh, he isn’t the first person to do something like that. Just maybe the first yo uhave seen put it on youtube? Then again with the new touch screens it looks a bit better than still needing a mouse and being in the eighties.

    Gotta agree with Kat on this one – the touch screens are cool, but the GUI would’ve been more interesting if they opened at least somewhat differently than the standard Windows behavior. I really expected the directory items to animate in from the left to create the list, as opposed to just open like every other GUI out there.

    This shell would be more impressive if it simply did not look like just another shell cover…
