Casual Friday — gonna' party like it's 1999…

Here’s another interesting look at the future — this time from 1967, looking all the way forward to the wonders of 1999!

This comes by way of Snopes, but originally was part of a Philco-Ford production titled “Year 1999 A.D.” It actually does a decent job of predicting the sort of ways in which technology might be a part of daily life (although, obviously the details are off). As is often the case, it completely misses the social changes that came along with the technological advances.

If you’d like to see more of this video, you can see other segments at Paleo-Future, or buy “1999 A.D.” in its entirety on a DVD from the A/V Geeks’ Store.
