You should write that story.On a sort-of-related tangent, I make quite a few models with various different parts with an SF theme. Over the years, I've ended up buying a few books of design art from computer games, from which I steal visual cues and inspiration. One of the best such books is for Bethesda's Fallout 4, which includes a range of super fake magazines from a 1950s-styled future. Magazines can be collected and "read" (essentially, consumed in the same way as food) to provide bonuses in the game, but I think the design of them is great in itself.
