Walter Cronkite in the computerized home office of 2001 (1967)

In this brief clip from the March 12, 1967 episode of the CBS show The 21st Century, Walter Cronkite shows us a home office from 2001. Aside from the clunkiness of the equipment, this 49 year old video is very prescient.

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

Watch the full episode here, which has some far-fetched and whimsical contraptions in it, and a cool Moog soundtrack:
