Futurism in action: A look at 1999, from back in 1967 – pt2

Posted by Lee on July 12, 2009

Following on from my last post, here’s a look at what the 1999 kitchen of the future was going to look like from a 1967 perspective. Again, I have no idea where this clip came from but if anyone can tell me, I’d be grateful – IBM, Honeywell, some science show or something completely different?

I have no idea where this clip originally came from but it’s an interesting look at what we thought 1999 was going to look like. This clip shows how we were all going to be doing ‘fingertip shopping’ from the home.

While some of the thinking was spot on – e-commerce and shopping sites; what’s really funny looking at this clip from 1967 is the chauvinistic view of the world and women’s role in it, and how the guy pays and reviews his bills for payment!

Anyway, enjoy and if anyone can tell me where this clip came from, I’d be grateful – IBM, Honeywell, some science show or something completely different?
