Trying to predict what the future will be like is always fun. As a kid, I used to love those Looney Tunes cartoons showing the home of the future with all the wacky inventions they could think of. Towards the end of the 19th century, various European artists imagined what the world of tomorrow (present-day) might look like. These predictions were printed on cigarette and packs and in chocolate boxes. While most of them are pretty far-fetched, it’s surprising to see how some of them actually came to be a reality!
