Walter Cronkite in the Home Office of the 21st Century (1967)

In this 1967 clip from the CBS series, The 21st Century, Walter Cronkite demonstrates the futuristic home office of the year 2001. He accurately predicts video chatting, online news and weather, and the radical notion of working from home (no mention, however, of blogging). You can watch the full program, “At Home, 2001,” at A/V Geeks.

With equipment like this in the home of the future, we may not have to go to work. The work would come to us. In the 21st century it may be that no home will be complete without a computerized communications console.
