It's 2013 and still no hover cars. This is getting ridiculous.
But way back in Germany in the 1900′s they too had high hopes for mankind – the inventions and experiences we’d collectively create in the future.
Below are some illustrations from that period, that were apparently produced by Hildebrands (a leading German chocolate company of the time) which provide an amusing glimpse into the general publics perception of the future.
There are some wonderfully optomistic ideas and illustrations on show – my favorite would have to be the “Personal Flying Machines” a distant relative to my hankering for that (hopefully upcoming) hover car!
