Popular Science archives, online and free


Popular Science, in partnership with Google, just put its 137-year archive online, for free. You can't yet browse by issue; rather, the entry point is a keyword search box. But yes, the ads are all there too. At left, Chatroulette, er, I mean "You See Your Party On New Video Phone" (September, 1950). Ah, the history of the future never gets old.
