10 extraordinary visions of the future...

Popular Science was first published in 1872, while the Mechanix titles first appeared in 1928. Many of these - at first glance - ludicrous ideas are ones that have been realised, albeit in radically different manifestations.

Note:“How to be a Retronaut” accepts no responsibility for any damage or injury caused or sustained as a result of following guidance on “How to make a merry-go-round on ice”.

Thank you to Simon Mallindine and Andrew Lindstrom.

    Good to see such fascinating (and unintentionally humorous) periodicals getting some well-deserved recognition. http://blog.modernmechanix.com/, which publishes excerpts from the original magazine, is well worth visiting.
