Thanks to a treasure trove of archive footage, GENERAL MAGIC transports us to Silicon Valley of the early 90’s where tech company General Magic is hard at work developing a handheld computer which would go on to revolutionize the world of communication. For even though their “personal intelligent communicator” was a total flop, it nonetheless laid the groundwork for the smartphones and tablets of today. This highly fascinating and entertaining documentary serves up a series of ideas and concepts which would go on to form the basis of the world as we know it.
