Eerie Technology Predictions from 1982

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010
I recently came across an old copy of a “Video Review” magazine from December, 1982, a publication that now seems to be out of print. This issue contained an editorial column called “VIEWPOINTS” with the subtitle “New Ideas for 1983”, which featured guesses at what might be developed in the near future. While the technology did not show up the following year, the predictions were freakishly ahead of their time, and nearly each one now appears in our modern lives.

In this post, you’ll be amazed, astonished, flabbergasted, and drunkened by the accuracy of these technology predictions from Video Review’s David Hadju back in ’82. If by the end of this post you still don’t feel drunkened, don’t worry, I’ve drankened enough for the both of us.
