Back in the 90′s when computers and technology seemed to be on the cusp of something great, AT&T made a few predictions. I wish I could say my predictions for the future were as accurate. My childlike mind, built on technology from The Jetson’s, forecasted a robot slot by my front door, so that when I returned home from school, I could order any desired dish and receive it within seconds. Seriously, think how amazing that would be? I’m not ready to give up hope. I just want it in my kitchen, by my couch, and at my office as well. And I’ll still need a Rosie for dishes.
Either way, it’s a good thing AT&T had a little more realism behind their peek into the future. No DeLoreans here. Watch the mashup of 30 second spots and among them you’ll see Kindle-like products, video conferencing, car navigation, and even opening a door with your voice. A few of them are a bit of a stretch. I guess faxing and pay phones seemed irreplaceable at the time.
