Star-Trek 'Gadgets'

Yes and no.

Star trek wasn't aired in the UK till 1969 a widely known fact that leads to a lot of confusion on topics like this.
Maybe so, but my point was in relation to this from PK99,
It goes back further than Star Trek. Samsung won a patent case against Apple by arguing that the Tablet form was first shown in 2001 space oddesey.
I doubt if Samsung were basing their case on when Star Trek or Space Odyssey were aired in the UK

Actually, that picture is from the short lived Canadian Dr Who rip off.

To avoid being sued by the BBC, the time ship was called the TURDIS.

I can't remember which one it was, but there was a Philip K Dick story in which the protagonists find an alien artefact. They find it has a number of very useful functions. Unfortunately, the last was a nuclear self-explosive.
