09 Nov Famously Incorrect Tech Predictions
In some cases, technological advances have been predicted with bizarre accuracy. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy foreshadowed touchscreen smartphones, Back to The Future had hoverboards, flying cars and self-tying laces, Star Trek anticipated 3D Printers, and 2001: A Space Odyssey almost perfectly depicted modern tablets.

– “Flying Machines Which Do Not Fly,” October 9, 1903
