My kindergartener brought home a book about cars from the school library today. Check out this gem from the section on "cars of the future":

Is that not the most amazing circa-1992 projection of what a GPS might look like??

That is totally awesome.  Although I feel very old since I was a grown up in 1992.

 Same here! I always find it interesting to see what out of the "predictions" of what we'll have in the future end up being accurate.

Wow, that book was spot on (the illustration is a little off) but what a great description of GPS!  As a former librarian this post made me a little uncomfortable, I have to say that the fact that your son found that book at his school library says bad things about the collection there.  That book should have been weeded out years ago.

Just used this in my classroom today! We are finishing up Fahrenheit 451 and we were watching the old Fahrenheit 451 movie.  The technology was so different then and they got a kick out of this!

Yeah, I was a little shocked! Our education tax dollars at work, right? :P
