Quote by Douglas Trumbull
There were IBM logos designed for the film, and there were IBM design consultants working with Kubrick on the layout of the controls and computer screens.
This quote suggests that in the film being referred to, IBM logos were created specifically for it, and IBM design consultants collaborated with director Stanley Kubrick to ensure the accurate portrayal of controls and computer screens. This implies that the film wanted to present a realistic and authentic depiction of technology, potentially adding credibility to the story or enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal. The involvement of IBM in the film's visual elements indicates a partnership between the film production and the company.
