Design For Dreaming

View the future, as it was envisioned in 1956, with this short film produced for the General Motors Motorama (an auto show put on by GM from 1949 to 1961).  A little song and dance, futuristic kitchens, a touch of fashion, and cars.  Really cool looking cars.

Buick "Centurion"

While watching the kitchen of the future portion I realized something.  In the future, it is important for a button or switch to be a certain distance from the thing that it controls.  This idea of controlling something “remotely” may catch on.[/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

    Oddly, I’m actually quite familiar with this fun little short!

      I’d read about this being featured on MST3K. Never got into that show myself – I’d rather just watch the movies sans the witty banter.

        Some films are unwatchable without the banter. I saw the MST3K movie in the theater. so I had the experience of the audience wisecracking back to the wisecrackers on the screen.
