Here Is How People In The Past Imagined We Would Be Living In The 21 st Century

The future has always fascinated humankind. If we think about the future now, some of us imagine cyberpunk, others a post-apocalyptic world. There are many futures that we have been able. One question that Angie’s List asked is how people in the 1950 s, for example, imagined the future. Well, here are some drawings showing us precisely that.

The beings before us imagined that we would have some moderately dopey fabrications by now. However, there probably aren’t numerous beings washing their sofas with a hose in the 2020 s, and robots are still not doing our makeup. Numerous interior designs seem a little over the top as well, although there is no doubt someone out there would love to live in a house like that.

The inspirational images were taken from the movies Back to the Future or from beings from the past, like Italian industrial decorator Joe Cesare Colombo or American science fiction author and astrophysicist Gregory Benford.

What do you think about these thoughts? If you have any themes for the future that awaits us, share in the comments!

“What is the most awesome technological development you can imagine being applied to our living rooms in the future? For the author of a February 1950 article in Popular Mechanics, the answer was: waterproofing.’ When Jane Dobson cleanses residence, she simply turns the hose on everything, ’ wrote Waldemar Kaempffert on how life would be in the year 2000.’ Everything hefty would be made of plastic or other waterproof synthetics. Lighter things like tablecloths were to be mock-linen, woven from incinerator-ready paper yarn.’”

“Drying your freshly-hosed living room would be no problem.’ After the water has running around a depletion in the middle of the flooring( later concealed by a rug of synthetic fiber) Jane turns on a bomb of hot air and dehydrates everything, ’ reports Kaempffert. Housewives of the 1950 s must have really disliked feather dusters.( To his credit, Kaempffert prophesied’ patronize by situation phone’ in the same article .) ”

“Those same hose-wielding housewives trying to save on the dishwashing by expending disposable plastic layers that simply melt away in hot water, according to Kaempffert’s article. But one home appliance fellowship dared to think a bit more space-age: dishwashing with ultrasonic waves! ”

“Frigidaire, like Kaempffert, dared to imagine a networked, IoT age. They indicated a’ hands-free, distant-talking TV telephone’ with a 50 -number memory bank that could be used to start your glass-dome countertop oven from anywhere in the world countries( as well as to open and close windows ). ”

“Joe Colombo was a visionary designer who believes in fluid, resilient organisations for a live. His 1969′ Futuristic Habitat’ project imagined an open-plan home comprised of a’ Central-Living’ leisure space, air-conditioned’ Kitchen-Box, ’ and this’ Night Cell.’

The Night Cell sleeping area featured a Barbarella-style, climate-controlled sleeping pod, as well as a lavatory and wardrobes. The retro-futuristic furniture wouldn’t be out of place in science-fiction series World On A Wire . ”

“You can see a video of the Futuristic Habitat in action on YouTube. Celebrated designer Colombo, who was to die on his 41 st birthday, saunters in toward the end, puffing his piping. Colombo’s sleeping arrangement of pick was a drop-top Cabriolet bed that he designed, terminated with control panel, cigarette lighter, radio, and phone.”

Game room( 1960 s)

Image recognitions: Angie’s List

“Paul Alexander’s illustration of a futuristic game room seems aimed at facilitating gamers to look up from their screens and engage with both the specific characteristics and the technology around them. Lounge in the pool while playing waters-edge pinball, or curl up on your dish-shaped sofa with a close friend to dabble on the multimedia station.”

“Alexander drove in building and marketing, and later became a science-fiction illustrator for works and periodicals. Despite once being described as’ one of the top’ gadget’ creators currently working in the American paperback market, ’ Alexander retired when computer-assisted illustration became the norm. Imagine if he had lent his hand to video game design! ”

“In the 1980 s, Tim Flattery and Edward Eyth were put to work imagining the year 2015 for the makers of Back to the Future II.’ We were highly motivated to make it so we didn’t look like gulls in 25 times, ’ according to Eyth. Their unused lavatory design foresaw the smart residence with a wall-bound’ computerized family diagnosis& medical treatment center’-even if we’re not quite there yet.”

“The pair also reinvented with their’ horizontal bio-cleanse environ.’ These individual sanitation enclosures use steam-spray and’ sani-ray’ laser brightness to scrub you scavenge. If “youve had” the infinite for it, this centrally-oriented hygiene control center moves for a pretty cool sci-fi bathroom in which to unwind after a daytime out on your hoverboard.”

Dressing room( 1900 s)

“The oldest imagination in our accumulation is a 1900 imagining of the year 2000.’ Madame at Her Toilette’ is a glorious steampunk dressing room, packed with strange bars and proto-robotic tools that are both practical and aesthetic.

The original demonstrates Madame in the grip of articulated comb-arms and blush cushions , not so much being pampered as tortured into her gaze. Among the brass and teak is the control device itself, a marvelous mixing desk of buttons, light-headeds, dials. To accompanied it up to date( conceptually if not technologically ), we’ve contributed a reel-to-reel tape player that reads magnetically-stored’ pre-set’ looks if you prefer to only sit back and make the dressing room restraint itself.”

“In the 21 st century, we get so caught up in the flow of technology and intend progress that attractiveness suggestions from the past tend to get cast aside. So, if you plan to renovate your chamber with a futuristic theme, why not draw inspiration from these imaginations of yesteryear? Except for the waterproof living room, of course. That one’s just silly.”
