I May Not Like Fox News, But Their New Newsroom is Sci-fi Cool

I’m not exactly a regular viewer of Fox News, but this new report from one of their anchors I do like, Shep Smith, caught my eye. They’ve complete revamped one of their newsrooms into something that looks pretty dang futuristic. It’s sort of ridiculous, but I kind of like it.

Most notable is the fact that Shep’s “information specialists” are now working behind him on giant 55 inch surface PCs the size of drafting desks in order to find and confirm news live on air. I think the system is less about “quickness and efficiency” as they claim, and more about just looking futuristic, and I have to admit, it does look pretty damn futuristic.

That said, I’m pretty sure forcing people to stare at a 55 inch screen from a foot away for a long period of time isn’t exactly going to sit well with their corneas. Still, this very may well be the sort of computer we all use in the not too distant future, and I’ve certainly seen something like it across more than a few sci-movies over the years. Only there were more holograms. That’s CNN’s department, though.
