Soviet magazine “Tekhnika Molodezhi” (“Youth’s Technics”) was sort of Soviet “Popular Mechanics” mag. Was covering newest technological topics and also always tried to speak about technologies of the nearest future.

Every issue of the mag tried to predict how 21st century would look like. Here are some of the predictions. Let’s start with the earliest magazine issues and gradually move forward to late 1970s to see how 21st century predictions changed as 20th century technologies evolved.
