Bravo Arthur C. Clarke!
It’s hard enough to visualize how our lives will be altered by technology in the next 12 months, let alone more than 40 years into the future. Somehow it seems appropriate that social media brought us in touch with the following footage of British science fiction icon and futurist Arthur C. Clarke from a 1964 BBC Horizon program. His statements about how we would communicate in the 21st century are eerily prescient, though some would argue that even though just about everything can be done remotely these days, the face-to-face meeting is as important as ever.
And in case you weren’t aware already, Clarke also predicted the iPad.
