The future ain't what it used to be, part 2 ...

This link shows what the kitchen of tomorrow (if you consider 1999 "tomorrow") would be like, based on what Philco thought it would be in 1967.

Some of the ideas in the kitchen (such as creating meals based on computer assistance with dietary factors included) sound like good ideas. I also like the flat screens, but the idea of the cameras in every room to feed the flat screens seems a bit "Big Brother-ish".

And avocado coloring in 1967 - what was up with that? The whole clip - and the very air that the seems to have an avocado tint. And the kitchen reminded me of the Star Trek food replicators, with food just magically being dispensed somewhere.

I also agree with one of the commentors - I think Dad was Wink Martindale.

Hope nothing breaks in the kitchen of the future, or maybe everyone will starve ...

Hat Tip (again): Cory Doctorow/Boing Boing and Paleo-future
