1900s Technology Predictions: 2100?

I was at an ed conference yesterday, Leading the Learning Future, and the keynote presenter showed these amazing post cards from the 1900s. They are predictions of  technology use today. Some are absolutely wild while others are nearly spot on.

These images would be great for sparking conversations on what technology will be in 2100 and beyond; as an activity your students can make post cards too. Also a great resource for initiating an evaluative study on why some technologies became reality and other remain a fantasy.
