You missed the Star trek angle
Can't believe you missed the fact that the interface is based on the LCARS interface on the ST:TNG computers. That would also explain the beep :P
Pocket Universe is the creation of one John T. Kennedy who was inspired by lack of opportunities to view the night sky with any clarity or frequency in his native Dublin.
