They forgot to invent color TV in this vision of the future - everything else looks pretty cool though:

"I'm impressed by the HD color flatscreen TV. In 1956, TV was black & white, with 4:3 aspect ratios and big bulbous tubes."



My parents got a 16" b/w Zenith TV around 1956. That was the only TV in our house until 1979—and none of that fancy outdoor antenna stuff, mind you. When my dad finally cracked and brought into the family room an inherited color TV , connected to an outdoor antenna, I felt like a North Korean defector brought into the modern world.

The Three Stooges! Star Trek! Bruins hockey! 

Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken;
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He stared at the Pacific—and all his men
Look'd at each other with a wild surmise—
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.

 

When I was a wee lad my Dad cut a hole in the wall and inserted our big black and white TV into it and framed it in nicely. There was a closet on the other side of the wall. Our set wasn't HD or even color but it looked pretty awesome and a little futuristic. Then at some point I heard my parents saying that the stations (I guess we got maybe 12 or 15 living near LA) were experimented with color broadcasting and I assumed that we would soon be receiving a color picture so I watched and watched every little speck, every scratchy line for a hint of color. Sometimes I could swear a saw a little color. I used to hallucinate a lot when I was little - for real. Eventually we got a new TV and enjoyed the occasional program in color.  My favourite was Walt Disney's Wonderful World Of Color.
 
and Bonanza!

 Indeed!

I got suckered in a similar way. I was about four when "Flipper" came on and the announcer would say "In Living Color!" Almost every time I would get this surge of hope: were we going to get Living Color?!?!

I remember the Disney intro too. That was great. Wasn't Kurt Russell always starring in a Disney movie as a kid? Couldn't get away from him. 

I saw Batman the TV show later on as reruns. That show was MADE for color. The crazy sets and costumes. The cartoon-like characters and the zany "Pow" graphics. A shame it lasted for only three seasons. Adam West and Burt Ward swung pretty hard during their stardom...

"In 1900, German chocolate company Hildebrands produced a series of postcards imagining the wonders of life in the year 2000.
The optimistic renderings envisioned people in Victorian fashions enjoying lives of boundless leisure and comfort enabled by a century of technological advancement..."

The TV caught my eye too. Pretty good call for 1956. We grill a lot of fruit - pineapple/bannana/ect.  We haven't done grapefruit yet, but now that I'm thinking about it, I would do that and add it to coleslaw to go with fish tacos.  Those guys knew what I'll be doing in three weeks, amazing.
