80sruler : Mother spends father pays - this never changes 🤬

c0c0andc0 : Thats how you realize how technological advances are much easier to predict than social ones 😂

cochiselol1232 : Mr Brown and I got along famously...

Robert Howard : The predictions were quite good from a technological point of view, the casual sexism was sort of funny (in an ironic way, as they made all these predictions of the future, but assumed that women would still be housewives and their husbands would earn the money and approve purchases)

Kaynos : Fake news ;p

Bob Silver : One thing about the 60's, some of the coolest car were made...GTO Chevelle Cuda Roadrunner Firebird 442 Cutlass Lemans GS Charger Challenger Mustang Nova LeMans Tempest etc etc

thaddeus mcgrath : The 1967 Idea of "The Home of 1999" had a flying type car parked on the beach and Jr. studying by computer correct but why didn't they not think of we would be having Tide Pod challenges and safe places for snow flakes to hide?

Imperial Guard #28 : Heck, The Jetsons cartoon series in the 60s predicted we'd have video chat. We were off to such a good start. What happened?

jakep1979 : The car at the beginning looks like "The Homer".

Chadi Aboueid : The 1960s will always have the best furniture

fiachraswaz : and in 1999 women will still cook the dinner and leech off their husbands money. obviously independant women was far too ridiculous to comprehend in the 60s

Stamatis Stabos : i made an album music trailer with that video lol

Paul Jamieson : this is the family computer speaking. (broot-broot)

Massive Branflake : What the wife buys will be paid for on by the husband... I guess they didn’t predict equality then

Homar De La Torre : We are behind internet was still in its infancy...no one paid bills online by ‘99

Dominique Sigouin Roy : Anonyme saw this, kid on computer. Believed the eart was flat. The world is flat. Better start waking up people. Still 95% of people think it round. = We are all going to die. Good bless

skipstalforce : "All the information about this family is stored in the central home computer" LOL!

Sarah Gray : We sure don't have cars like that one...and why is Mom still the one who has to make dinner?

Marcus Cochrane : Honestly it’s not that far off at all

Willie Scheiderer : My Pc has never made dinner for me..

Richard Poynton : Further to my first comment. They used quite a bit of imagination for this, but missed some of the more obvious changes to come. For instance, he was looking at his bank details on his computer which showed him a picture of a hand written sheet. Banks are still using humans to ‘compute’ the figures, not a spreadsheet programme. Also, the underlying sexism is still there. The ‘little woman’ is still in the kitchen. She might not be slaving over an oven, but she’s still in the kitchen preparing food - so equality of the sexes hadn’t been postulated - that’s quite a glaring error to our modern eyes, but was totally invisible to people in the 1960s, apparently. It makes you wonder how parochial and primitive some of our present day ideas which are so prevalent and widely accepted in our society will appear in 60 years.

mensa517 : not far off as they used us as an unwilling focus group====as you can see everything is/was pre-planned only to be rolled out decades later per their agenda

PEPEdela110 : And who knew that in our "Magnificent Future/Present" issues of race and status would dominate society.

Crystal Elk : This was so insightful for the 60's. But as a child watching the Jetson's I seen all these thing's we have today! Very cool to see none the less!
