We were promised jetpacks!

The blog compiles "past visions of the future." Meaning articles, drawings and predictions of the past about what the future would be like.

One of the most common predictions of the past is that by the year 2000, we'd all be flying around on jetpacks. Unless I've missed something, most of us are not.

Way to get our hopes all up for nothing, past predictors! At least there is the Scottish indie rock band We Were Promised Jetpacks to help us cope with these failed dreams.

For those of you who never dreamed of jetpacks, there are also other Scottish indie rock bands, such as Frightened Rabbit and Snow Patrol.
