The future is…NOW?

On Sunday nights in 1962 we took time to chat and dream about robots, microwave ovens, video calls, holograms, video cameras, electric toothbrushes, treadmills, making calls on watches, flat screens and even flying cars.  

None of which existed…yet.

It was a first for ABC too.  
It was the first TV series they’d broadcast IN COLOR:  The Jetsons.

“Sooner or later, what’s old is new again.”  Thanks Stephen King for that one.
I wonder if quote in this case should be “What’s NEW is old again”.  ;0)

The Jetsons were the first Network TV show to be shown in Color (on ABC-TV) in 1962, and it predicted so many of the items we use today.  From the daily thought blog
