In 1964 Arthur C. Clarke Predicted The Wireless Future Almost Perfectly [video]

The Jetsons and Back to the Future had it all wrong. They pictured the year 2000 to be some crazy space age where we defied the laws of gravity and all other things earthly. But way back in 1964, Arthur C. Clarke touted advances in transistors and communications satellites to be responsible for a smaller word. He was pretty spot on. From being able to get in contact with anyone, anywhere, anytime to robotic surgeries carried out over the internet. In this video of the TV show “mysterious world” the author of 2001:A Space Odyssey Clarke warns you that his ideas were way out there and they should sound unbelievable to you. Hearing them now shows you just how smart Clarke was and how well he understood the advancement of technology.
