In case some of you don't know, the name "Nexus One" was taken from the 1982 sci-fi classic, Blade Runner, [Trailer YouTube Link] staring Harrison Ford.

In the movie there are human robots that are called "replicants" and their model is called "Nexus" and then a number related to the generation of model.

It truly is a movie worth checking out.

Definitely a good flick. Love the ambiguity about Harrison Fords character being a replicant. If it was made nowadays they would make it a twist ending, cheapening the film.

Yeah, I was reading about that yesterday and tried to catch all the clues in the movie. It's funny Ford says during the filming it was his understanding his character was human while Scott says he was a replecant.

Correction... Nexus One was taken from the 1968 book Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? by Philip K. ****. This book was later adopted into the movie mentioned, Blade Runner.

While you are technically correct, you are not presenting the full truth. Just wanted to set the record straight.

Regardless, Blade Runner is a good movie and the book is also good.

More people are going to know the movie more so that book. That's why I choose to talk about the movie but thanks.
