HP 9100 appearance in Earth II
Today I learned that the HP 9100 calculator appeared in the movie Earth II from 1971, a pilot for a TV series that never materialized (its German name was "Killersatelliten". You may all know its appearance in "The Andromeda Strain". However, in Earth II several HP 9100 appear quite a few times. Funnily enough, you’ll see that the calculators are not connected to power and were never turned on.

Here are some interesting scenes ...

Too bad that the HP 9100 never got a TV series star ;-)
