Bill Murray — sometime in the ’80s — appears on the TV program Wired In to drop Bill Murray-esque thoughts on technological advancements in the Reagan years.
“They got robots now making cars in the factories. That’s stupid,” he says during his mini “rant.” “Don’t get me wrong. I think R2-D2 was great. He was neat. He was funny, he’s a fine actor. But that’s science fiction movies.”
The action then cuts to a Las Vegas trade show highlighting some of the most cutting edge products from back in the day: full-sized computers in briefcases, the Diet Trac calculator that electronically figures out a nutrition plan for you, and a rep for Pierre Cardin Electronique explains why designer label electronics are the ish.
