What Will 2018 Have in Store for Us? Let’s Look at Some Predictionsby

It’s always fun to have a little bit of a look back in time occasionally, and when it comes to some of the more outlandish predictions of yesteryear, it can be intriguing to see just how close we were to the future truth – and how far away we may be, too! You only have to look at the likes of the classic Sci-Fi series Space 1999 to understand that time has a habit of slipping by without us realizing – and while we may now be playing host to touchscreen controls and the like that we’ve been seeing for years via Star Trek, we’re sadly still some way away from getting the teleported we’ve always wanted. Gizmodo have run a very interesting piece recently on some of the most interesting and the barriers notions that have been drummed up in years gone by with regard to 2018, and here are some of our undoubted favorites!

It seems that a 1918 publication of the St Johns Daily Star may have been on the money with discussion of dictation becoming commonplace. The newspaper asserted that, in 100 years, we would be speaking to machines and allowing them to write for us – something which we already do to some degree thanks to in-built features in many of our tablets and PCs. We still like the odd type every now and again, though – but not far off the mark!

Another interesting point of view from 1918 was put forward by New York’s Middletown Times Press, which asserted that the people of 2018 would be fascinated by watching footage of the Great War – a particularly interesting notion given that visual entertainment was barely embryonic at the time. While we may be more invested with fiction over facts at the cinema, this prediction is rather prescient with Christopher Nolan’s barnstorming Dunkirk having wowed audiences last year – a movie which will likely sweep up at the Oscars.

Lastly, a report from 1996 – from the Space Studies Board – suggested that we should be reaching Mars at some point this year in a fully piloted trip. While Elon Musk has designs on us colonizing the red planet within just a few years, we’ve yet to really make the leap forward – but with twelve months ahead of us, who knows what might happen? Take a look at Gizmodo’s fascinating guide to learn more about some of the nostalgic predictions yesteryear has brought us.
