    Will Life be worth living in 2000 AD?

    This is how some scientists in 1961 predicted life would be like in 2000.

    July 22, 1961, Weekend Magazine

    The status symbol of the year 2000 will be the home computer help, which will help mother tend the children, cook the meals and issue reminders of appointments.

    You know, they actually did pretty good on some stuff...

    You will be whisked around in monorail vehicles at 200 miles an hour
    You'll have a home control room - an electronics centre, where messages will be recorded when you're away from home. This will play back when you return, and also give you up-to-the minute world news, and transcribe your latest mail.
    You'll have wall-to-wall global TV, an indoor swimming pool, TV-telephones and room-to-room TV.

    Machines will "talk" to each other.
