There have been many predictions of the future, from the past. Almost all of these predictions were wrong, or we are at least still waiting for them to happen. A lot of these predictions were made by top scientists and engineers, world leaders and and the heads of powerful organisations. Lets take a look at these predictions, shall we?
-Arthur C. Clarke, a British inventor, wrote in Vogue magazine in 1966 saying that all houses would fly by the year 2001.
-What about in the movie Back to the future: part II, which featured hoverboards and flying cars in the year 2015? thats only 6 years from now, so for this prediction to become a reality, The first commercial flying cars and hoverboards would most likely have to already be in the market.
-Here is a prediction that sort of came to reality, The answer machine. In 1964 someone predicted an invention called The answer machine. It was thought that the user would type in a question or topic on a typewriter keyboard, and a screen on the wall would in front of the user would display the answer or videos and photos of the topic. Today, many people use something that has a much similar purpose, and real results. We know it as google.
-Another ridiculous prediction. "By the turn of this century, we will live in a paperless society" Roger Smith, chairman of General Motors, 1986
So the next time you make a prediction, you may want to consider the possibility of keeping it to yourself to avoid embarrassment
