Vintage Film Shows What Homes Should Have Looked Like In The Year 1999 A.D.


Folks had funny ideas about what the home of the future would look like back in the 20th century, and for some reason they saw the Year 2000 as a far off futuristic age full of technological wonders.

As we all know the actual 21st century has not lived up to expectations, which is why it’s so fun to take a look back at what those kooky post-war/post-modern minds thought we’d have in our homes today.


This vision of the future comes to you courtesy of the Philco-Ford Corporation, who released this speculative short film entitled Year 1999 A.D. back in 1967 to show homeowners what their company had planned for the future.
