Our Century as envisioned in 1969

CBS has aired this video in 1969. It is a gem for every scholar associated with STS (Science, Technology & Society) or with a healthy (?) allergy to technological determinism. Plus, role-players looking for retro-futuristic sources might get some inspiration for furnishing their gameworld (do not forget the ‘garden’).

This video gets another nice effect when watched directly before Minority Report.

I am not sure whether these are supposed to be predictions or a concert of Maslow’s bells.
