WFGR Retrovision: Disney Predicts the Future in 1958!
It’s always cool to find videos online that predict the future. Like this one from 1958. The Walt Disney Company would produce movies like this back in the day, when people cared about the future.
These days, technology happens so quickly, no one really HAS to predict what will happen in the future, because it’s already happening.
