Are we living in the future?
FaceTime et al.
You may still have been using a party line in 1962, but the Jetson family and their neighbors in Orbit City had personal phones or other machines that allowed them to video chat with whomever they pleased.
Fast forward a few decades and now just about everybody has seen FaceTime, Skype, or another form of video chats. You might even use them every day!
Tablets and Other Portable Tech
In 1962, many devices still had to be plugged in to work. The Jetsons presented a fantastic world filled with portable technology that fit the needs of the family’s fast-paced life.
Today, many of us carry our tech at any given moment. Some of us even wear it as fashion pieces. Of course, our stuff doesn’t necessarily look like it could kill you, unlike the whatchamacallit above.
One of the most exciting pieces of portable and wearable tech to hit the market in the past few years was the Apple Watch and other various smart watches.
Somehow, The Jetsons knew in 1962 that one day we would have these and wear them for our convenience!
