Let's Break down the Jetson's
The Jetson's was one of my favorite shows growing up. The show was set in the year 2062 and they're are some differences and similarities in how I think 2062 will play out.
In future Jetson's world they live in highrises way in the sky, b/c of the rising water.
That maybe true. I was watching the National news and they said by 2050 the waters are going to rise significantly.
In the opening scene George gives all the family member money to go shopping. Actual dollar bills.
The way the currency market is working now I'm not sure that actual dollar bills will be around much in 50 years and prob not at all in the next 100.
Rosie was a hell of a Robot/Friend/Maid but with the way robotics is going I doubt that in the 50 years robots will be that advanced.
The first episode of the 80's Jetsons, Elroy's school took a trip to the Moon and he found his pet Orbity.
With our now defunct space program I don't think schools are going to be taking many trips to the Moon.
The Jetson's had holographic Television.
This could be a reality. With the 3D TV technology getter better and better who's to say in 50 years that there isn't hologram TV?!
George had a sucky job.
They'll always be sucky jobs!
They had flying cars.
I doubt the flying cars of the future will be a reality. With gas approaching almost 5 bucks a gallon these days, the price to make your car fly would probably be ridiculous!
