In an amusing press release, Blue Microphones reports that the new Star Trek movie is crawling with its Mouse microphones. Here's a photo of one apparently recording the young Captain Kirk.
"Over 30 Mouse mics were used in the filming of Star Trek, all of which can be seen on the podiums during the key Academy probation hearings," says Blue. "The 24th century design of the Mouse especially fits the style of the technology in the Star Trek universe."
Somehow I imagined that microphones of the future would be powered by lasers or nanotechnology, but who's to say future orators won't want a retro style on the outside? What are some other good examples of modern technology showcased in very different centuries in movies?
