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
