Open fires and chimneys will be replaced by home heating and air conditioning systems, with hot or cold air at the turn of a “spigot” (faucet or tap.)
Stores will buy food ingredients in bulk and prepare ready-cooked meals at cheap prices which people can reheat at home. Customers will also be able to get meals delivered by automobile. (That said, Watkins also suggested food could be delivered to homes via pneumatic tubes, and that customers would send back the crockery and cutlery when they finished eating.)
Color photos will be sent around the world, with images shot in China appearing in US newspapers within an hour.

And of course when you look how many predictions are just plain wrong it puts the accurate ones into perspective.

Thank you hipsters.
WoW - there now are as many horses as before the automobile/machinery took over but horses are mostly (65%) used for recreation/pleasure. The rest are used for medical testing/research and the Racing Industry. WoW
