User interface evolution on spacecrafts

Interesting to see how the user interface and user experience is also changing on the spacecrafts. From the Apollo on the 1960’s, to Shuttle on the 1980’s and to Dragon on the 2020’s it seems that software is dematerialising the physical world. We see it also on everyday life like the cars that are created with less buttons and handles.

Perhaps by simplifying the user interface it’s a step forward on the path to change pilots to become just passengers.
