Flashback to the future

I'm completely taken with the blog Modern Mechanix, which provides flashbacks to what people decades ago thought the future would look like. Some of my personal favorites of late are how to create your own inflatable dome (from Popular Science, July 1973) and amazing marvels of tomorrow (from Mechanix Illustrated, Aug. 1955). Amazing how many of these predictions were both totally off the mark and actually close to the truth of what happened.
