Movie Timeline

Movies and TV shows are full of great gaming ideas from the little cleaning bots on Star Wars to the furnishings all around and those neat gadgets that seem to do everything. This page is devoted to providing some sort of timeline based on the technology level shown in each movie. The main purpose of this page is for gamers and enthusiasts to help build their imaginary worlds with as much detail as they can fathom.

Since this is a page for fans of all types of movies, we would like to have your input. If you think of a movie that belongs here, please send us an Email with the movie's title and where it should fit on this page.
