14 computer interfaces that gave Avengers its high-tech texture

Like bows on top of an especially fine present, these spangly, spiffy heads-up displays and computer screens that were littered throughout The Avengers added a lush, techie texture that the movie wouldn't have been the same without. And here's a massive treasure trove of 'em.

Computers have, of course, been an integral part of the movie experience—both on screen and off—since there have been computers. But every year brings a new standard of excellence ... and artist Jayse Hansen seems to be on the bleeding edge of that standard.

"This is just an image dump of Marvel-approved stills and screenshots of my work on the film. ... I had the distinct pleasure of working with Cantina Creative, leading the design of the glass screens for the Helicarier in The Avengers. I also led the design and animation of the all new and upgraded Mark VII HUD.

"Variations of it in 'all clear' mode, and a 'battle mode', after the suit has suffered damage and new windows have popped up to show depleted weapon stores and hazardous environmentals and general. ... The flight menu was designed with input from an A-10 Fighter Pilot. I like to keep my stuff accurate—while still taking design liberties that films afford."

There are tons more at Hansen's site, and they are all glorious.
