Inspired by me watching Blade Runner last night. After the opening scene where they’re testing Leon, it switches to a cityscape, where a Spinner is heading past a monitor that shows an Asian woman selling something. In the background atop one of the skyscrapers is “Pan Am.” Heh.
A gadgetry example: the golf game circa 1980 where you hit the ball against a home movie screen, and the screen shows where the ball would have gone. Somehow I think video games would have moved beyond that in the year in which Outland was set.
