In 1901 Ladies Home Journal predicted the world would look like this in 2001

IN 1901, the Ladies Home Journal predicted what the humanity would be doing in 2001:

  • Man will see around the world. Persons and things of all kinds will be brought within focus of cameras connected electrically with screens at opposite ends of circuits, thousands of miles at a span.
  • Photographs will be telegraphed from any distance. If there be a battle in China a hundred years hence snapshots of its most striking events will be published in the newspapers an hour later. [Tiananmen Square come to mind?]
  • Automobiles will be cheaper than horses are to-day. … A one pound motor … will do the work of a pair of horses or more.
