Storyline

A documentary about technological innovations that were supposed to improve our lives and be widely available to the mass market soon after the year 2000. Most inventions and ideas were outstanding. However, now that 2000 has passed even the concepts in the earliest shows appear just as futuristic and seem just as unlikely to be in consumer use in the near future as they did during the 1980s.

First MRI, Cray2 supercomputer
2 January 2007 | by (At Home) – See all my reviews

I am lucky enough to have one of the shows that I recorded on a tape back in 1988. This show was prophetic. Notably it featured the first MRI machine which was only large enough for someone to put their leg into. They said that there were plans to build larger versions of the machine in the 1990's that a whole person could fit into. It also featured the enormous liquid-cooled Cray II supercomputer with a whopping 2 gigabytes of RAM memory. Another neat thing was a commercial for CompuServe on the tape. It was a pre-World Wide Web dial-up service that featured the largest bulletin board. And here is the kicker; they ONLY charged ten cents a minute to connect.

I wish that this show could be downloaded off the Web. I find it interesting to look at technological predictions that came true or didn't.
