* Rudy Rucker's ''The Hacker And The Ants'' is yet another {{Cyberpunk}}-ish novel in which driverless cars are assembled from kits and VR is widely used for everything from shopping to cheap sex. Yet cell phones (as in ''Neuromancer'') are nowhere to be found, people still need to change CDs manually on their stereos, and the main character's hyper-sophisticated home office has no wireless connections between components, because equipping it with those would be ''hideously expensive''.

* ''StarWars'' features elements of this, but a lot of it is due to the UsedFuture setting, where technology is constantly breaking down and not working correctly. Technology seems to be entirely composed of sparking wire bundles, interfaces are all levers and flashy buttons, and holographic visual displays that are monochromatic and staticky. The prequels feature shinier and more streamlined technology, but the technology level stays about the same. At any rate, it ducks the whole zeerust discussion in the first place by stating that the story takes place "a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away." Thus, it's not the future and it's not our technology.

* The Fortean sf novel ''Sinister Barrier'' by Creator/EricFrankRussell (1939, revised 1948) is set in the far future year of 2015. An important plot point is an improved form of camera film, and even in the revised version there's radio but no television.

* Done deliberately in ''Space Station 76'', a 2014 black comedy in the style of a "realistic" space setting as imagined in the late 20th century, like ''Film/{{2001 A Space Odyssey}}'' or ''Series/StarCops''. Lots of beige walls, brightly coloured switches, clunky robots, crystal holograms, and old-fashioned attitudes to gender and sexuality.
