Man Vs Computer


F.A.Q. (Frequently Asked Questions)


What is that red orb that shows up in the final media project?

The red orb is my nod to 2001: A Space Odyssey. In the movie, a computer called HAL 9000 takes over an American space station heading to Jupiter. It appears to be a seemingly perfect AI computer which helps the crew in their journey. However, when a critical error is made, the computer refuses to believe that it made the mistake as it, and all the other 9000 series, are perfect. The humans secretly plan to shut down HAL by talking out of its hearing range. However, HAL adapts to the situation and learns what the crew is planning on doing by reading their lips. It quickly turns against them, trying to 'save the mission'.


Are you spoofing something else here too?

As far as the introduction video and the logo for this website goes, I am definitely spoofing The Office as I am a big fan of the show. Office Space was also another funny thing I wanted to add in there, as well as that short clip from Zoolander, which in itself was parodying the 'Dawn of Man' sequence from 2001: A Space Odyssey. As mentioned above, Hal 9000 makes an appearance in the final project as well.
