People have been making predictions about what the future would look like for ages. Sadly, they are usually far-fetched or even utopian and society doesn’t seem to keep up with creative wishes. So, are the predictions extremely ambitious or we don’t put enough effort into bringing wild ideas to life? There’s a huge question mark tied to what’s coming in the future. And although cutting-edge technology moves at a fast pace and many ideas that seemed outlandish in the past are more than real nowadays, we shouldn’t be carried away by fantasies because the future might disappoint.
Here’s What People In The 1900s Predicted Our Homes Would Look Like Today
1. Moving House (the 1900s)
Jean-Marc Côté’s prominent collection of cigarette cards, “Houses Moving Along the Country,” was a 19th-century building, imagining what life in the 2000s looked like. was prepared at the beginning of the 20th century.
Those utopian ideas have predicted the social and traveler house version of the architectural trends that we actually see today.
Vitaglass houses with a special new kind of glass to allow people from the sun to get in with useful rays, giving you all year round the summer season. It has mercury arc lamps within depressing days. Like all the best and new architectural innovations, Vitaglass houses have been tested on monkeys at the city’s zoo.
Because this new popularity could have allowed people to stay out of the house. So, despite the incredible ads that inspired this build, Vitaglass remained a commercial failure. So if you want to feel the ultraviolet rays, you’re going to have to go out.
In September 1934, Everyday Science and Mechanics Magazine told readers that while it’s not obvious that people are immediately living in a huge hamster ball, round houses will soon be very fashionable.This innovation aims to direct remote structures and new home deliveries.
But traveling in a ball can be quite difficult if you don’t want to damage the things that you have.
The more civilized and easy way to move houses is to transport them to a dozen powerful men on a tray. This strange picture is just an illustration. But why are our houses really terribly heavy?
In January 1942, the author of The Unfinished World gave us an opinion. According to this view, using very light foam in the construction of houses makes them earthquake resistant and requires less resources when building them.
Today, the lightest material in the world is 3D this hed graphene aerogel. Scientists are working on the use of this material to alleviate the environmental damage of traditional construction techniques.
5. Space House (the 1950s)
In December 1953, the cover of the Journal of Science Fiction Adventures proposed a glass dome — but in space. Puerto Rican cover artist Alex Schomburg’s free-floating snow globes come to be launched into unknown locations as a pop-up spacecraft…
Interestingly, Schomburg was an artist and company partner in a showcase workshop in the 1920s. The house design contained a layer of glass on two floors: a dome that protects the house from the space atmosphere, and windows from wall to wall, slightly painted outside the house.
In the cover story of Mechanix Illustrated’s June 1957 issue: “Current research on solar energy and architecture shows that by 1989 you can live in a house with a complete steel or glass facade.” The Rotating Dome enables homeowners to use the sun’s energy efficiently.
Hydroponic vegetable gardens, like those outside the dome house, are in the 21st century. While it does not carry the characteristics of century gardens, the hydroponic industry, in general, is $725 million between today and 2023, tripled its value.
General Motors created Futurama II Pavillion in 1964 to blow the minds of visitors to the New York World’s Fair. While the rest of the world looks at the stars, GM said we still have uncharted oceans.
Ray Dashner told visitors on the tour: “Our new knowledge and skills – new power and mobility – have given us a new and wonderful underwater world.” “Gifts from unlimited sea treasures are a wonder,” he added. You should put this type of house in your real estate brochure!
