Imagine what life will be like in the future -- like in 2008

Here is an awesome Modern Mechanix article from 1968 about what it will be like in the future -- 40 years in the future. It's a great read -- and oh, those 250 mpg cars would be nice wouldn't they?

Enjoy peeking into the hopes of techie geeks in the past,

Most of the article reads as you would expect: like fantasy.

However, there's one paragraph that seems to be quite accurate:

"Computers also handle travel reservations, relay telephone messages, keep track of birthdays and anniversaries, compute taxes and even figure the monthly bills for electricity, water, telephone and other utilities. Not every family has its private computer. Many families reserve time on a city or regional computer to serve their needs. The machine tallies up its own services and submits a bill, just as it does with other utilities."

All of the above are true. Bad ass! We're living in the future!
