Archos In Movies/TV

Post by davek22 »

My Prometheus blu ray arrived today and while watching the making of documentary I spotted something interesting. They had a piece on the design of the inside of the helmets. Inside the helmets are video screens for the crew to see various mission data. There, inserted sideways was an Archos media player. The Archos logo was clearly visible. Funny it's there but it would never appear in the actual film.

over the years various archos products have made it onto the big and small screens, the first one i saw was the av300 in a tv program, made me die as it has a ariel coming out of the headphone / av socket.
nice spot anyways, shame it didnt make it to the final sceens so it could be used as free advertising.

Don't forget Jack from the US TV series 24. In one of the last couple of seasons he used an Archos to play back some data he found on a chip.

Whats weird is its the second time this week I saw Archos in a film. I was watching the SyFy Philadelphia Expermient film the other day and in that they use an Archos to review surveilance footage. All this while I am waiting to buy my first Archos in a good while, the Gamepad. Pretty odd deja vu type thing going on

An Archos tablet (Gen8 vintage) appeared in the UK series 'Spooks. If I recall correctly, it was in the final series and the MI5 Mac network was locked down. However, the tech guy just happened to have his tablet to hand and was able to thwart the machinations of their opponents. Unfortunately, he dropped it at just the wrong moment (didn't break though!).

Changing makers, I remember seeing a Palm E2 being used as some sort of uber-handheld PC in the first series of Torchwood. This thing effectively ran everything remotely...which was ironic given how frequently my Palm used to crash...

I used to frequent UMPC Portal and they had a forum thread there about UMPCs spotted in films. The Sony Vaio in Terminator Salvation and Quantum Of Solace and the OQO in Mission Impossible 3. We should keep this thread active with any nice tech spots in films
