Three Years Ago in TreeHugger: Things We Were Promised but Never Received


It is much like trolling through old Popular Science or Modern Mechanix: The jetpacks and flying cars and wrist TVs that never happened.

Three years ago we promised you Motorola phones that you could plant in your garden when you were tired of it; Self-cleaning clothes (shades of the Man in the White Suit!). Stirling engines, after two hundred years in the wilderness, were going to take over the world. Sigh. Where's my jetpack? More from three years ago in TreeHugger
