Over a hundred years ago, French artist Jean-Marc Côté drew a series of postcards depicting what he thought the world might look like in the year 2000. The cards, created between 1899 and 1910, are surprisingly accurate as well. He predicted a future dominated by automation, air travel, wireless communication, and living underwater — a result of overpopulation on land (three for four — not bad, Jean!)
Regardless of accuracy, his vision is just downright awesome. Someone needs to make this world into a movie or a massive RPG soon — preferably before I’m forced to move into the Atlantic and my Xbox gets waterlogged.
