In 1967 they predicted online shopping

The 1967 film 1999 A.D. showed the day in the life of an average America family on 1999. This clip shows “the video console” – I.e the personal computer or smart phone.

While the tone is a bit sexist the predictions of the activities that people would perform via technology (shopping) describe our current reality.

which we see the family of the future shopping, paying bills and using electronic mail from home.
