I have a new favorite blog. Modern Mechanix combs through old science magazines to pick out some of the goofier retro visions of the future. (There are some seriously awesome ads, too.)Behold the baby-sized gas mask, the real-life hair helmet, and the magic house that makes its own weather.The site (motto: "Yesterday's tomorrow, today") is good for more than just a laugh, though. It also serves as a reminder to those of us writing about technology that the gear you fall in love with today could be the stuff you ridicule tomorrow.
