This month we look back and look forward to inventions and products. Looking back, there is an article on inventions/products introduced at the 1964 New York World's Fair, now celebrating its 50th anniversary. Some of these heralded the beginning of game changing inventions. Picture phones, interactive computers for personnel use and robotic animation are several that led to today's much more advanced products. Others were a little off the mark or to advanced to be yet realized such as living in underwater colonies. My favorite was a machine that would both clear and pave rainforests. That concept would not be appreciated today.
