These are wonderful!!

It's amazing how the future now looks like the 1960's...not just in the vision of Motorola but also Walt Disney's Tomorrowland, Buckminster Fuller's geodesic domes and others!! We seem to have much less of a sense of what's to come today than they did 50 years ago!! I still think of the future in the visions of these visionaries from the 60's, I wonder why??

Well, we're still not where Motorola envisioned the 1960s.  A house built over a stream?

Frank Lloyd Wright tried it....but then he was an architect not an engineer!!! LOL!! And they didn't have ridiculous environmental permitting laws to limit creative thought either!!
