The Steampunk Future

In 1900, some German speakers* produced a series of postcards about the marvels which would exist in the year 2000: weather-changing machines, personal airships and flying machines, and devices for walking on water. Some of the predictions we do have (underwater boats) and some we could have but don't because it's a terrible idea (X-ray police surveillance -- you know some perv would just use it to watch women undress.)

*Apparently they were part of an ad campaign for Hildebrand's German Cocoa.
