love this crap!
love this crap!
I can never get enough of these old, super-optimistic visions of a (capital-F) Future that never was.
I have a book entitled "Wasn't the Future Wonderful", it's full of great stuff like this!
i don't think this is how humans should imagine the future.these are the toys.few can afford them.the nature cannot though.
*O* Reported attack site! XD
Funny vintage futurism.
haha, very funny.. awesome pictures
These are some cool illustrations on magazine covers that display gadgets and concepts of the future
Super "futuristic" illustrations ...should I tag this under "humor"?? :)
Another great link for scifi magazine art to go with the other set I came across this morning.

Vintage Space age illustrations
Some of these ideas became reality. The TV on a wristwatch, solar heated houses, sky diving, people living in space (ISS), jet packs, flying cars (actually just an aeroplane with wings removed, crap as a car but good as a small plane).
Do not diss this stuff too easily.
As for the final picture 'This could happen to you'; I think that was the auto industry trying to kill off the monorail industry with propaganda (a valid business technique at one time).
Why are our past visions of future technology almost always red and yellow? Were they just the cheapest colours inkwise?
Wacky visions of the future? A number have become reality although not necessarily as portrayed; para-sailing but not behind a helicopter, WW1 tank, jet packs, folding wings on aircraft for carrier duties.
Its not like we need most of that stuff anyway. :P
like that vintage stuff
who's gunna be the first to get thrown from the winter spinner?
