Movies that were wrong about the future 1

Produced and directed by Stanley Kubrick, 2001: A Space Odyssey predicted that there would be lunar colonization and commercial space shuttles for civilians by the year 2001. Though both concepts are now a possibility, neither of the two existed in the year 2001.

Mankind doesn’t also have a computer system as advanced as the intelligent supercomputer H.A.L. 9000 featured in the Oscar-winning movie. The film, however, accurately predicted many pieces and forms of technology, including tablets, video communication, voiceprint recognition, and flatscreen TVs.
