The article mentions The Jetsons. I’m one of the generations that was “educated” about the future with that cute cartoon. They got it right with the chairs, I’ve seen similar ones in Norway. But they got the future wrong in many ways. Agree, simulation outpaced many promises.
It’s been decades since the last time I watched the Jetsons but now that I found them in YouTube (even if outdated) I can’t avoid a smile with their music and story. Funny: my new haircut is suitable to make a hairdo similar to the one used by Judy Jetson. youtu.be/wb46p0Lgaus
