eDEX-UI is a science fiction terminal that runs on most operating systems. It was heavily inspired by the user interfaces in sci-fi movies, like TRON, Minority Report, and others. While it’s not very practical for the day-to-day use for anyone heavily using command line, it’s a lot of fun to run when there are non-technical people around, staring at your screen.
The installation is pretty simple:
git clone https://github.com/GitSquared/edex-ui.git
npm run install-linux
I think it works even better with a large touch screen, but I don’t have one around to try it on.
