Vision of the Automotive Future from 1958

[YouTube - Link]
This is a great little video, an excerpt from Disney's "Magic Highway USA", showing what people from the late '50s thought would be the future of transportation.

It's really neat to see how far we have come, and how far we haven't. Some of the predictions have come to some manner of fruition, such as real-time traffic stats, navigation, and autodriving vehicles. While some are still pretty far out and "Far Out!" like atomic-powered and solar-powered cars.

"Father will enter the information" Now, ladies, this techno-talk is too much for your pretty little heads. Why not go and make us men some martinis while we have man talk. Go on, scoot!

I love 1950's predictions!
