This retro-futuristic postcard was produced in the 1930s by a German magazine.
In this vision of the future, they got a few things right: mobile video calls, kids able to use technology and flying cars.

The most fascinating aspect is that, 80 years ago, they correctly envisioned our Society of Simulations culture: two people sitting at a table, eating a meal and ignoring each other while looking into their phones. Via Retrofuturism

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
