Back to the future

As a kid growing up in the 70's the year 2000 loomed large.

Many of the TV shows, graphics and product designs from that period still look futuristic.

And now it's here I have to admit the future looks a lot like the past.

No hovercars or jetpacks that's for sure.

But what we do have in abundance are devices that people back then couldn't possibly have imagined.

Tortured artist Alex Varanese recently re-imagined many of these devices for the 70's.

Pretty cool don't you think?

And even though his 'ads' look kinda retro the products themselves still look futuristic.
