20 Astonishing Predictions That Actually Came True

 

Predicted: Online shopping and email in 1967

When Philco-Ford’s short film speculating the future of goods and services went viral in the mid-00s, it was so accurate Internet users presumed it was a hoax- but it wasn’t. A leading pioneer in electronics in the late 1800s and mid-1900s, Philco became one of the first companies to produce mass-produced radios, and the Ford Motor Company eventually purchased the company in 1961.

In recognition of their 75th anniversary, they produced a short film speculating on how electronic goods would look like in the future. The video was titled, “Year 1999 A.D” and prophesies how online shopping and “instant written communication between individuals anywhere in the world” would become a reality in the following century.
