Eye of Tomorrow: French Film From 1947 Predicted Our Addiction to Smartphones in the 21st Century

Télévision: Oeil de Demain (“Television: Eye of Tomorrow”) predicted that some day in the future everyone would be walking around looking at personal handheld screens.

J.K. Raymond-Millet’s 1947 film may have been far ahead of its time, it seemingly predicted how we would use smartphones in the 21st century. It was not intended to be a feature length film, but rather one used for educational purposes.

In addition to showing people using miniature-television devices in public places, the full clip also showcases professional meetings conducted via picture-phones, cars equipped with television screens, and shops promoting their goods on television.
