Video Flashback: One Day, a Computer Will Fit on Your Desk

As the year is nearing its end, it’s nice to rewind and re-watch some of the predictions humans have made about the future. In this one particular video from 1974, science fiction writer Arthur C. Clark makes a prediction that’s not only technologically accurate but also culturally aware. He correctly states that we will have computers that will fit onto our desk, but it will also make us more mobile and flexible in where we live and how we move.

What are your predictions about the next year or the next thirty years?
