I think the principles behind the pictures are actually quite accurate, the 'futurist' him/her self probably realised how daft the actual images
would seem to those of us with the benefit of hindsight, but he was attempting to convey a lot of ideas to people that accepted the recent
developments in tech.
In reverse order:
Flying police: We have flying police, chopper coppers. We also have various air forces all patrolling their various bits of air space. It is a
simple leap to imagine that as more people use the air, more restriction will have to be applied.
We have clothes and other products that require fast cheap production made in factories that have a certain amount of automation. (okay it is still
cheaper to use third world labour - different issue) Computers can specifically tailor certain items such as a sports shoe or a space suit glove
right down to orthopaedic shoes.
We have those - the dream kinda died with the Hindenburg, but is still a current area.
A chemical dinner:
Mc Donalds and the like - just not as swank as the pic
A Festival of Flowers:
This dude loved the idea of personal flying machines didn't he?!
Not far off, we use headphones / visuals in assimilating information, not sure exactly what the mechanical grinder screwing up all those books
symbolises exactly, possibly foreseeing the replacement of text on paper with more efficient methods of sharing information.
We have fantastic machines for building nowadays - does make me think about what this dude intended everyone to do for a job though, but the women in
France could walk past a building site without being jeered at I suppose.
Cars of war:
Goes without saying - take any vehicle - select weapons and bolt em on, works for planes, trains and automobiles.
Video conferencing is old news (older than we think
Hearing The Newspaper:
People uses to pay just to see the news reels at the cinema before radios were affordable.
Heating With Radium:
Just basic understanding of heat being transferred through radiation.
Lady In Her Bathroom:
Lady In Her Bathroom with her toys??
One For the Road:
He foresaw the need for road side amenities, even though this dude still seems addicted to his simple flying machines!
He didn't predict how flipping annoying answer machines are did he?
Police have used motorcycles since the day they became usefull, before that it was push bikes.
