Stories that "Predicted" eBooks and Flash Drives
Quote:Of course Star Trek: TNG introduced the concept of ebooks/tablet computers to a huge audience and likely inspired people to develop the tech in the form we use in RL. That said, ST:TOS also has some kind of clipboard/tablet computer thing that was occasionally shown - usually in the context of Captain Kirk being handed it by a female crew member to read or sign. Details of what it looked like, whether or not it was anything more than a thick clipboard, or how it supposedly worked were never provided AFAIK.

I was worrying no one was to mention the TNG Big Grin

On a somewhat similar topic I always like to remember "The land ironclads" by H. G. Wells that anticipated the rise of the tanks in the coming WWI
