Boy oh boy did the future ever look bright through the eyes of folks living in the early 20th century, back when futuristic meant flying cars and food replicators instead of selfies and Google.
The futuristic world envisioned in the past sure does look like a lot of fun, it’s too bad we have to settle for our flash free 21st century blahs while we wait for our mechanical overlords to conquer the planet.
Here we see the nursery of the future as realized for the Ideal Home Exhibition held in Olympia, London in 1930. The nursery comes complete with comfortable baby tending helmet and gloves for mom, coffin like crib sure to quiet even the noisiest little bugger, and a shiny chair to warm your aching buns.
The only things missing are a remote controlled robot bartender and a cigarette rolling machine!
