Envisioning the home of the 21st century, in 1967

cronkite

Walter Cronkite didn't get every detail right when he laid out his vision of the 21st century, but he wasn't that far off. Paleofuture recently compiled a collection of clips from Cronkite's 1967 show The 21st Century, in which the legendary newsman gives a tour of the "home of 2001." The robot servants that Cronkite envisioned have yet to be adopted on a wide scale, but he was somewhat prescient in predicting the rise of 3D televisions and the personal computers — even if his idea of the PC was drastically larger than what actually panned out.
