"Experts" trying to predict what marvels the future will hold is nothing new as these cards from just over 100 years ago show. What is suprising, is how much of it they got "right". Sure, today's tech doesn't work in the way that is depectied, but it does achieve the same thing. If anything, the reality is better than the prediction. Let's hope that holds true of the predictions being made today!
If only learning a new subject was this easy. I'm sure nearly every student has wished they could study for their exams by sleeping on their textbooks. Sadly, we're still waiting on this tech.
Not only do we already have this tech, but a roomba is considerably smaller and more convientent as it doesn't require one to pull it along.
Or just use, like ladders? Doesn't seem like a whole wing suit is needed. Plus, imagine the drafts from a burning building. It would be nearly impossible to fly near one.
Well, we don't have flying taxis yet. But a number of companies (such as Google and Uber) are actually spending money on building and testing prototypes, so we may very well have them sooner than many think!
I suppose flying was a brand new technology in the early 1900s, but man, they really wanted to see that technology explode!
Another example of something that they got "right". Yes, we do have automated sound machines, but we, obviously, don't rely on having the actual instruments. Instead, everyone has a speaker on their phone and in their homes.
And here's their thought on how a play could be broadcasted. Though, why not combine the automatic music machines of the last one with this one?
Also, fairly accurate. Many of the world's largest farms are fully automated these days, with the farmer simply keeping tabs on the machines to ensure that nothing goes sideways.
Today, this moving platform is called an escaltor or, well, moving platform. Regardless, if you're not walking, please stand on the right!
A genius idea if you ask me, if not for PETA, and also electric motors.
Zepplins were also all the rage at the time. Though, a flying battleship seems pretty easy to knock out of the sky.
Not sure what the point of being able to 'walk' on water really is. But like I said, the sky was the new limit and they loved anything and everything that had wings or balloons.
Some men seem to be imbued with charm and charisma. People follow them and label them natural leaders. Girls talk about all the sparks after going on dates with them. It seems as though, anything they touch turns to gold; objectively they do the same thing as you or I, but others always seem to…
We’re a man’s shaving company, so how would we know about avoiding shaving burn/bumps/rash on legs and bikini area? Simple, we designed a razor to actively fight against it on men’s faces. And the skin on their faces is at least as sensitive as on your legs. If we can help them get past razor…
Men shave their heads for different reasons: going bald, wanting to look more dominant, or simply cannot be bothered with different hairstyles and want to look tidy. Whatever the reason, you cannot dive head first into this because you might end up with some nasty cuts which is something we definitely want you to avoid.…
