Arthur Radebaugh drew a newspaper comic called Closer Than We Think in the late 1950s and early ‘60s. While his art was firmly planted in that era, the ideas were supposed to be of the future. Some of his fantastical predictions have come true, like home computers, self-driving cars, factory farms, flatscreen TV, robotic warehouses, remote jobs, electric cars, and the electronic home library. Other are just silly, like space hospitals, color-changing cars, and the vehicle you see here. The walking machine is for evacuating cities by walking over the clogged roadways in the event of an emergency. And it would scare alien invaders away.
