I came across this video and thought id share it i found itinteresting...
The future as they saw it in the 1920's. Followed with predictions from the 1930's.
1920s roaring twenties future predict predictions fashion, jazz age, flappers,and the robot invention
I wonder, if 80 years from now our great grandchildren will find our predictions as silly as some of these...Some of the fashions reminds me of Lady Gaga's outfits.. Peace,sugarcookie1

Awesome stuff!! Unless one knows some insider info, one can only imagine the future as a more advanced version of their own time.

Cool.

Its funny how things never work out the way we want. We should be flying around now etc!

Ive got a book from the 70's that paints a similar picture to whats shown here. And thats only 40 years ago! ...and none of it has really happend.

But maybe in another 40 years...

eee.

I just hope that beauty doesn't die in the future. I find the industrial, sterile depictions of the future that are so ubiquitous depressing.

Ursula Southeil. English soothsayer.

Born 1488. Died.1561.

"Carriages without horses shall go,
And accidents fill the world with woe.
Around the world thoughts shall fly
In the twinkling of an eye.
The world upside down shall be
And gold be found at the root of a tree.
Through hills man shall ride,
And no horse be at his side.
Under water men shall walk,
Shall ride, shall sleep, shall talk.
In the air men shall be seen,
In white, in black, in green;
Iron in the water shall float,
As easily as a wooden boat.
Gold shall be found and shown
In a land that's now not known.
Fire and water shall wonders do,
England shall at last admit a foe.
The world to an end shall come,

surprising how much was accurate though, and the suspension bridege apartments are an interesting idea, most of the future city stuff though would be too hard to get emergency services to and maintenance e.t.c.

Most of it would just be too hard to keep safe.


"And candies for cuties" lmao!

We could be flying around now in cool futuristic cities, think of the fifth element if you have seen the film. It is not technology that is hindering us in achieving this, as we already have much of it... it is simply the lack of will to implement these technologies on a large scale imo.

During the Twenties they didn't foresee the future in going through the depression, Pearl Harbor, multiple wars, 9/11, corrupt governments. The people then were basically sold for the roar of the twenties. At that time there was so many great inventions and growth in almost every industry that they didn't have time to think of the horrible tragedies that Americans would have to endure. We were the new hot kid on the block because...

americasbesthistory.com...

WE kicked arse back then...WE were growth and prosperity. Now WE struggle to get by and are kicked around like imbeciles. When can this change back to the ideas beyond the next Iphone, some new hot bop celebrity, or some new youtube sensation that wont mean sh*t in 3 months when replaced by another new hot top youtube video?

I absolutely love the growth of entertainment and technology but doesn't it seem so fake now and days that it shouldn't even be worth it?

WE should be more worried about the direction America is going. Not who the next 16 year old pregnant girl who will be publicly humiliated and be on 16 and pregnant?

I think the suspension-bridge apartments could possibly be a bit haphazard, as well as slightly noisy. I did like the cruise ship, although it didn't look like it had too much deck space. I think that one thing that most don't consider when making predictions for the future is the cost of such developments and advancements.

Just think of how much more advanced we would be now if the money and resources were there for all of the ideas we know will work, but either need a bit more work, or just need to be produced. I think futurists also forget that the things that get produced are the things that make the most profits.

I am sure there are business people who would love to keep us from advancing if it means they would make a lot more money, and technology usually does make things more expensive in terms of research and development, yet also cheaper for the consumer. That can be a hard thing to work out if you are in the business of making money off of the misfortune of others, as is how big money is regularly made.

I remember a prediction that went something like "Men will stand on opposite shores of the ocean and talk to each other with speaking stones". If you were in the 15th century and saw a person in the future talking on a cell phone that's about what it would look like. I think I saw this on Discovery or the History channel.
