These Past Predictions of the Future are Hilariously Off

Wild predictions about what the future will look like haven’t just been limited to dystopian novels and sci-fi movies and TV shows coming out of Hollywood! Plenty of companies tried their hand at looking into the crystal ball during the previous century, and the results were pretty wild! We sifted through a few and found some that pretty much nailed it and some that were so hilariously off, we’re not sure what they were thinking! Just a reminder for us today — sometimes, visions of the future that seem like sure things end up being the punchlines of tomorrow!
