Have a look and see what you think....pile of crap or clever and innovative...............Imagination sometimes leads to reality...

Some of the concepts are cool, but some aren't very practical, at least in my eyes at this point in time. Take a look at what they thought the year 2000 was going to look like back in the 1950s.

I think the snail is an excellent idea, and is probably marketable today, if the inventor could get funding to start mass production on a final design.

The clean closet is really cool, but where does the dirt go? Sometimes clothes have more than just grease marks or a little pen on them. Kids come home covered in mud a lot.

The cooking, lighting, refrigeration panels are an alright concept, but I believe in 50 years cooking enthusiasts will still be using gas stoves and all the other bulky cooking pots and pans. I know I will be.

The dishwasher is okay... I don't see it happening, though. And I definitely don't see the gel refrigerator happening. Maybe 100 years. Not 40. If you think about it, besides computers and TVs, not all that much has changed since 40 years ago in 1970.

Some of those look promising,Does the winner get to mass produce their design I wonder?

I sometimes think we should also be looking at some of our older inventions with a view to modernising them.
An example would be the way we used to power the gas street lights of London and other cities with methane from the sewers.
Back in the day that made being a gas lamp lighter a potentially fatal job(because lamps and pavements would sometimes explode),which was why the practice eventually stopped.
But with todays tech,I think something like that could be very helpful and safe.

Cool thread subject Pdog.


You may enjoy this,a film from the 1930's which makes some funny predictions about the year 2000.
Its an old thread,and fell off the boards after about 1 hr,but you may like it.

This is more related to the title of the post, more than the topic at hand, but, It's already possible... To a certain extent... Without the aid if quantum mechanics or unrelated psy phenom. Through web bot. Although not 100% correct, it has made some valid predictions.

That's probably what they said 50 years ago... and then they got the microwave.

Yeah, interesting concepts...

But honestly, I don't find this new kind of design beautiful (I mean, the whitish Apple new fashion), they tried to make it look futuristic but really it's just not beautiful.

The gel refrigerator is a good idea...but I just don't see it happen...not in a couple of years. I don't think the masses will appreciate putting their food in gel...well I wouldn't...

What ever happened to the program tomorrow's world which guessed at future technologies.

They should do that again and revisit past predictions to see if they were close
