that's some kind of prototype I believe
Yep, all the rare clear plastic stuff were prototypes so they could verify fitment of the internals and check alignments.

There's a clear Newton 110 on ebay right now.

I love that interior. Adam Curtis uses footage of it in his films that deal with the hope and promise of technology.

Then there's Carol's desk...

I think that's R. Buckminster Fuller's Dymaxion design adopted for water.

Anyway...found (on the internet) art.

That GM Tech Center (1965) may have inspired the set for this (only shot i could find but the seated figure is the 'look')

Why not both?
Photos in old camera are from the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens:

A photographer was rummaging through old cameras at a Goodwill looking for those with undeveloped film. The camera itself dates back to about 1938 so she took the roll of film to a specialty shop that deals with vintage types of film.

There were also some family pics which were printed by the Oregonian newspaper. A reader identified himself in one. The camera had been owned by his now-late grandmother who was also in some pics.

The photographer will return the camera and the pictures to that family.
