I have some.Contribute if interested
one of my many favourites
Retrofuture! My favorite subject..
I also have some star wars but this might not be the place
I like this one. Old man looks cool
And again, one of my favourites. Mostly book covers, if you haven't figuered already
I really like this one (cca 1900)
Good thing the free-market capitalist economy keeps our dollars flowing into cheap appliances, television, fast food, guns, alcohol, high fructose corn syrup, etc. A collaborative, dedicated attempt by humankind to colonize space would just be so dull.
1885 prediction of today.
Indeed that stuff sucks ass and better alternatives have been proposed
>Back when everything was possible, sci fi was dreams of the future, becuase western society was still white
>mfw it's isn't any more and now sci-fi is about over popoulation, fall of civilization and dystopianism
I tried to model that once. Used 3ds max back then. Didn't know enough about materials and particles. Now i'd say blender is better for that particular thing(don't wan't to start a war though)
Well, socialism is and always has been the boogeyman.
>pic related; perceived effects
Some really old-school looking stuff
And finally, my by far THE MOS FAVORITE picture - We'll All Be Happy Then (1911)
Its one hundred and three years old.
.. because I, in this very fucking moment, are looking almost exactly as that person on that picture.
And another one
So you're very old?
Some Asimov stuff maybe?
Enjoying this thread a lot. Please continue. Interesting to see how orcanic the lines in many of the pictures are, and not beep boop hard metal and robotic.
I have no information about the pictures unfortunately. They have been gathered over a length of time. A quick smoke-break now
no, im very surrounded by displays, in the same half sit half laying posture, fukken roomba robot is shacking around, drinking tea, and i am not very amused by all of it.
Wow. 1911.. And at the moment we sit in front of our computers, linked to the internet, a data flow of endless possibilities, entertainement, information, and we still often get bored of it. That's some foreshadowing right there.
>and i am not very amused by all of it.
That sounds very British. Are you from the UK?
Then ill be a good anon and tell you a secret.
Works pretty darn well for China.. within 50 years they will be mining He-3 from lunar regolith for, y'know, their fusion reactors. I just hope they don't piss on our flag...
Good movie, that one.
Good movie indeed. Sam kicked ass int that one.. acting wise
Except for the wholesale slaughter of millions of their own people in a wanton disregard for life, the environment, and any sort of human rights. Pretty much the same as all the rest.
No, more to the east. That tea is just a coincidence.
>picture : and to be fair, our japanesse brothers were pretty much allways fucked in their minds - even back then, when creating visions of the future
My god, they had the tentacle stuff even back that far.
Maybe it wasn't the radiation the amerifats dropped on them...perhaps they really are fucked up..
Especially notice the BOOB NIPPLE TENTACLE feeding the infant...
oh yes, the bright future where they can all feed themselves.
also, i am from prague, czech republic. There is a metro station built by czechs and soviets, around that time many of those retro scifi came into existence (about the time gagarin got into space, everyone was so hot for the future). Looks like spaceship.
also there are stone reliefs of future astronauts and cities on the walls..
>Well, socialism is and always has been the boogeyman.
About 90 million of its' own citizens murdered, pretty good boogyman.
Meanwhile in Moscow. This station was named after one of the greatest poet, Mayakovsky.
Who may have continued to tout the word Socialism even after Lenin's death, but never followed any true Socialist ideals. They built a nation of slaves through the illusion of Socialist revolution, then trapped the slaves in the illusion of Communist brotherhood.
No, it is not. Everything was allready predicted and imagined, moreless, back in the 19th century.
from 1885. Around same time as Jules Verne.
Damn that does have Jules Verne feel to it, 20000 leagues is my favourite book, and I could easily see any of those things being described in it.
"how people will go to the opera in the year 2000. (1882).
Notice the eiffel tower beacon - scary fact - by the 1882, there was NO eiffel tower yet (it was even designed several years later)
>NO eiffel tower yet
That's pretty amazing.
and one lover, escaping through window with his flying machine from an angry husband
except those 50 years of cold war and constant real threat of nuclear apocalypse
towers to moor air ships over cities were as common as airships themselves in the future art at the time, the Eiffel tower was meant to be a multifaceted symbol of French modernism at the time.
Ya, a real threat we spent lots of time/effort/money instigating.
Between Fatman and the fall of the Wall, the US spent 19 trillion dollars just on the nuclear stockpile.
well it was at least a bit more useful than the $22 trillion spent on federal social programs since the "great society" initiative.
Yeah, we got a good number of residual technologies, but it corrupted the fuck out of the gov't.
>inb4 Ike's Military Industrial Complex threatening our democracy speech
yes. For the flying ships. It is coincidence, but it is paris, and it really looks like it.
even bullshitting about economy and possible futures was invented long ago
1942. WILL the science harness power of the sun?
Will it? 62 years later?
1949. Climate control, roof over New York.
Isn't it so much better to have jewish overlords and African rape monkeys?
"Robots will be the kings in 2000"
That's the goddamn Citadel from Mass Effect!
