On New Technology...

As one who is dedicated to bringing new technology to the public, I thought you might find this interesting.  It is a film made for the 1939 World’s Fair, which includes extended footage of the famous “Futurama” exhibit.  The latter was an incredible projection of life in the 1960s (if you are not familiar, it was a giant diorama, and visitors were transported around the room in moving seats to experience the entire thing).  I actually found this on a DVD collection, but I saw that it is also available at

The initial narrative about “To New Horizons” is a bit cheesy, but really captures the American spirit of moving ahead to improve life through technology.
