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.

    1. Hey Diana,
      danke fürs Bescheidgeben. Hier wäre ein anderer Link:

      Da ich nicht erkenne, was in Deutschland funktioniert, hier die Schlagwörter für eine Google Suche:
      Walter Cronkite, “The 21st Century”, 12.03.1967
      Viel Erfolg und viel Spaß mit dem Video.
