That voice over though.


#3

They didn’t compile a list. They made a cheap video of someone with an annoying voice reading a list. I couldn’t get through more than a couple of years’ worth. A simple printed list would be much better.


#4

Missing from that list is somewhere in that time span text to voice would become indistinguishable from humans and replace voice over talent forever.


#5

#6

they missed Drumpf’s impeachment


#7

in 2023, Disney’s copyright will run out

Checked out here. Just not plausible.


#8

PFFFT…at the rate Trump is going, there is no way we are getting to 2020.


#9

Had this video been made 30 years ago, we’d already be on Mars and in flying cars today, so I take much of the stuff from 2025 on as a big maybe.


#10

In the Year 2525…


#11

This is the only world prediction I need. It’s just as potentially accurate too - and with a groovy beat!


#12

Yea, I just can’t take a futurist seriously if they failed to foresee Trumpism 5 or 10 years ago.


#13

My thoughts exactly. Wondering what they will come up with.


#14

The film “Soylent Green” ran in Germany with the title “… Jahr 2022 … die überleben wollen”.


#15

I want to watch this video but at the same time i kind of don’t


#16

Where’s my jetpack and flying car?


#17

For real. It’s okay to “flap” those t’s, kids!


#18

Still no Half Life 3 though.


#19

2050? I appreciate your optimism regarding my lifespan.


#20

Learning of Breakthrough Starshot was a positive outcome of watching this video.
