* The interiors of Moonbase Alpha on ''Space1999'', and the Alphans' Rudi Gernreich-designed uniforms (particularly during the first season, when they were more unisex).

* Elon Musk's UsefulNotes/SpaceX is deliberately designing their vehicles and spacesuits with this in mind. Compare their [[http://www.spacex.com/sites/spacex/files/styles/media_gallery_large/public/pad_abort32.jpg?itok=jOCvN_9y Dragon V2 capsule]] with the Russian [[https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bc/Soyuz_TMA-7_spacecraft2edit1.jpg Soyuz]].

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.

* ''TabletopGame/{{Traveller}}'' fits this to a T with illustrations of computers looking almost exactly like twenty-first century ones. Justifiable in that after you have miniaturized past a certain level user friendliness, fashion and aesthetics will become a premium. Maybe you can someday put several terabytes into a datadisk the size of a dime but a human still needs to interface with it comfortably, so it is hard to picture computers designed to communicate directly with a human instead of just another computer being smaller then a palmtop without being inconvenient. Wristwatch-sized computers, "datacloths" which seem to be flexible paper-thin screens, and perhaps myriads of other arrangements are available. However one of the most popular arrangements in Traveller from pictures and discriptions seems to be something that looks rather like an Amazon Kindle.
