Imagine looking back in time to see the future that awaits you.
This is not a mind-bending treatise positing some manner of chronological chaos theory.
It is a prescient prognostication in a segment from the 1967, CBS NEWS, documentary series, entitled THE 21st CENTURY and hosted by the venerable anchorman, Walter Cronkite.
Watch this clip and compare the projected technology depicted with the computer you use for work or play in your own home, to the HDTV,big screen television you watch or the digital,climate controls that provide heat or air conditioning.
While the technology shown may be primitive, the 1960's vision for the home of the 2000's is close to accurate.
Here from the Brian Ahier YOU TUBE site, is an excerpt from THE 21st CENTURY.
