Fonts of the Future: The Typography of 2001

This was a link I found somewhat interesting:
http://www.2001exhibit.org/arts/designs.html

It's an exhibit of the graphic design (logos, signs, console displays, &c) on the movie 2001.

The designers didn't (unfortunately) do any custom type designs. They seem to have made the assumption that the future will belong to Futura, Classical Sans, Eurostile, and stencilled Helvetica. One spaceship sign was odd, using Helvetica with Future M's.
