by Mike –
When I was a youngster reading science fiction stories and watching movies and TV in the 1960s I was sure we would be driving flying cars, have sentient robots and a colony on Mars by 2014.
Instead of flying cars we have the beginning (actually a restart) of the electric car industry, instead of sentient robots we have the iPhone and instead of a colony on Mars we have a non-sentient robot roaming around Mars looking for water and signs of life.
Cars of the future
Below are some of the cars I thought would be in production now. Remember how many of the “cars of the future” looked like airplanes?
The flying car that never was
Robby from the movie “Forbidden Planet” and Anne Francis
Maybe we will have all this stuff by 2020 – that is so far in the future.
Happy New Year!
