What may happen in the next hundred years (John Elfreth Watkins amusing predictions from 100 years ago)

In 1900, an American civil engineer called John Elfreth Watkins made a
number of predictions about what the world would be like in 2000…. read more via the BBC. I just ran across this image of Watkins' predictions from 1900, and thought they would make a very good 2013 kick-off / happy new year post.

Some of my favs:

  • Hot and cold air from spigots
  • Ready-cooked meals will be bought
  • Automobiles will be cheaper than horses
  • Areal war-ships
