1999 AD predicts the future

Posted on Thursday, September 08 2011 @ 05:10:02 CEST by


Thus you can imagine my surprise when I found out a little 1960s documentary that predicts the future with strange accuracy. The documentary is called 1999 AD, and it has been on YouTube for a while, but it has recently come to my attention. The film depicts a middle class family living in the “House of the Future”, and all the futuristic day to day activities that the family participates in. Such activities include internet banking, online conference calls, online shopping, integration of computers in schooling, and even microwave cooking. All this is done on computers, or “computer consoles” connected to a single home network, or “console counterparts”. Unlike futuristic depictions from its time, there are no laser guns, jetpacks, or clunkily adorable robots. The film stays grounded in depicting what is possible, not what would be super awesome.
