What life might be like in the year 2000 ? (amusing look back at 1910)

We’re always imagining the future, and trying to think of what it would be like to live in a time other than our own.  When we were growing up, most of us envisioned flying cars, food pills, being able to go for days without sleep, genetic modifications and more.  Obviously, none of that has come to pass, yet.

It’s also amusing to look back at the past and see what people thought we’d have by now.  In 1910, French artist Villemard produced a series of illustrations depicting what life might be like in the year 2000. You can see a wide range of the artist’s predictions below:
