People have always been interested in what the world will be like in the future. Even today, we can have a lot of guesses about what the year 2100 will be like. And it’s funny to know which assumptions came true and which ones were, well, a little wrong.
We learned some predictions from the past about what it would be like today, and we decided to recreate them with our own illustrations.
How people thought transportation would advance
How video calls in the ’30s were imagined
In the past, they called this flying vehicle “the flying carpet.”
They thought that mail would be delivered by a rocket mailman.
How people thought barbers would style hair and beards
How a long-distance video call was imagined, but we don’t think they thought about the camera part…
People thought we’d have gigantic veggies and fruits.
Patients would get automatic prescriptions while they waited.
How they thought schoolwork in the future would look
They thought that in the year 2000, we’d move houses with trains.
Which prediction surprised you the most, and why? How do you think our lifestyle and technology will develop in 100 years?
