Isaac Asimov's 1964 predictions of life in 2014 are prescient [Knowledge]
posted December 24 2013 12:26.42 by spic0m




Of course we all walk around with powerful computers in our pockets now, and they do a lot more than Asimov's Trash 80. There is a lot more stuff that was science fiction when Asimov wrote in the New York Times in 1964, after visiting the World's Fair, and predicting life (and the contents of a world's fair) in 2014. Elaine Hsieh tweeted that it was "remarkably prescient", and indeed it is. Some of the more interesting predictions:
Lighting
The Kitchen
Robots and computers
Solar power
Tofurky!
Jobs
