This Czech vision of the future from 1957 features a number of goofy predictions (cookbooks replaced by punch cards, an at-the-ready dispenser that gives accurate doses of ingredients) along with a couple uncannily accurate ones (cool-to-the-touch induction cooktops and "TV shopping"—essentially an early, starry-eyed form of online grocery shopping).
The coolest thing in it is the circular, rotating, glass-door fridge and the infrared rotisserie. Give it another 51 years.
