* Parodied in a TimeTravel episode of ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' where everything in the future is chrome. They even have guys who drive around in vans spraypainting everything that's not already chrome.

Contrast RaygunGothic, which is its opposite in a number of ways, and CassetteFuturism, which could be thought of as "Everything Is A Walkman In The Future". See also HolographicTerminal and AsceticAesthetic. For when everything (in the future or otherwise) is actually made by Apple, see EveryoneOwnsAMac, as well as IPhony for direct parodies of Apple products.

** The in-universe explanation for {{Avert|edTrope}}ing this trope is because the worldwide petroleum shortage has made the manufacture of commercial plastics very expensive, hence why, say, the go-to construction material for rifle stocks is wood or metal over carbon, home appliances are made of metal, and everything generally looks like the pre-plastic world.
