Prognostico the Great predicts the future, circa 1969

In the year 2021 people will be able to go into a phone booth and make a telecall where you can see the other person on video. No — even better — phones will be so portable that you can make a video call from wherever you are — anyone can, not just Dick Tracy.

You’ll be able to pop some food into the over, press a few buttons, and have your hot meal ready in just a few seconds.

Cars will have autopilots so you can park or cruise down the highway without thinking about it. Books will be on little computer screens, and so are encyclopedias and all the world’s knowledge at your fingertips.

You can order household goods or almost any product in the world and have it delivered to your doorstep in a day or two, or even a few hours.

War? Tyranny? Senseless hate? Bullies? Still working on it.

Oh, yeah, and no flying cars. Sorry.
