Some Failed Tech Predictions of all Time. How about those that are yet to happen?


Some Failed Tech Predictions of all Time. How about those that are yet to happen?

In 1966, Time Magazine had predicted that remote shopping, while entirely feasible, will flop. 52 years down the line, e-commerce is now the norm for shopping as lead by Amazon.

In 1995, Robert Metcalfe, co-inventor of the Ethernet, predicted that the internet will collapse in 1996. Today, every businesses, every household and every individual has internet.

In the 70s, Ken Olsen, founder of Digital Equipment Corporation predicted that there is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home. Today, I know no one without at least one computer at home.

In 2018, news of mind uploading experiments and building of creating a virtual world came out. There are predictions by famous futurologists of it coming true by around 2050. Ray Kurzweil, Elon Musk and Dr. Ian Pearson seem to share the same prediction. Would they be able to prove it coming true somewhere in the distant future?

What do you think?
