Happy New Year: Looking Back and Forward

This video, dating from October 1954, is a segment from GE that aired as part of a televised celebration of the Diamond Jubilee for the electric light.

The video predicts future technologies, including automatic dishwashers, VCRs, DVRs, cellphones, flat screen TVs, 3D TV, and more.
