Back in the day, Apple created the concept video above to inspire and pump-up staff. Check it out, it’s quite interesting. It features the ‘Apple Knowledge Navigator’ and plays out an ‘ideal fantasy design’ as according to Apple at the time.
Concept videos were (and are) often used for these reasons. Shoot for the moon, and then pull back a bit and develop something for real world use. Any way you slice it, the video above was pretty darn good for 1987.
