The Internet In 1969 Video | Vintage Clip Predicts Online Shopping

19 sec read

Consoles like “the household monitor screen” and an “electronic correspondence machine” don’t exist today, but this vintage clip from 1969 is pretty close to predicting the internet.

Also included is an unintentional bit of sexism; which I find very funny.

This clip is an excerpt from an actual documentary in 1969 about the future of middle class Americans. Surprisingly, it predicts things like online shopping and e-mail.

Another funny thing about this video is the subliminal sexism when it concerns the husband paying the bills for the wife. His face at the 0:46 mark is priceless.
