Did you know sliding doors were also inspired by star trek?

They had some ST:TNG cast members at the unveiling of the iPad and they were impressed to actually see one in real life in their time.

I wonder if this was actually the first inspiration of the slate tablet concept? I remember reading a while back that Motorola got their inspiration for the original flip phone from Star Trek. Sometimes those imagining the future actually end up inspiring it.

Forget electronic clipboards. Where's the Apple phaser?

Set that sucker to stun and beam us down Scotty!
