Yesterday's future as seen today (images)

Quote:
ZDNet UK's Matthew Broersma takes a look at what was science fiction a couple of generations ago and how these ideas stand today.

Now that we know that the future is mainly about picking out which type of rubberized cover we want for our iPhone 4, yesterday's dreams of futures past are looking somewhat naive. Remember when the future was about jet cars? Or space planes that didn't involve Richard Branson? Or making friends with the highly cultivated, six-legged denizens of Pluto?

First of all, let's recall the video phone. Not the kind implemented in the iPhone 4, but the one where a technician came to your house and embedded a vacuum tube-powered black-and-white television set with attached 1950s-style TV camera into the wall of your office. This was meant to let you dial up your colleagues across town and marvel together at how cool it all was.
