Axiotron Modbook gets some product placement lovin’

Eagle-eyed faithful Macenstein reader Aaron noticed what appears to be the first example of Modbook product placement in Hollywood. A recent episode of Sci-Fi’s new show Sanctuary sported a scene where Henry shows Dr. Magnus one of those annoyingly over thought Hollywood computer-type OS’s that could never exist, and it appears to be running on a Axiotron Modbook.

Now, I realize not EVERY computer company has the budget to get their gear in Transformers 2, but seriously, Sanctuary? C’mon Axiotron! I’m pretty sure my kid’s YouTube channel gets more viewers.

    i think the modbook is a great little homebrew hack but i don’t think it, nor any tablet pc in will ever generate mainstream appeal. would be nice to tote around all day with though.

    Oh man when i watched this i noticed the Maciness, i had no clue what it was though, i thought it was a macbook that they had modified, but no its a real thing. Crazy.
    The OS was pretty crazy though.
