    Induction stoves are already in use and some can boil hot tap water in under 30 seconds.

    And I love the infrared oven! Despite the fact they had infrared ovens in ancient times, and ZOMG! we still use them today!

    "Cokery-book?" Is this a drug lab of the future??

    It`s always funny to watch past forecasts of modern times which never come close to predicting the Internet.

    Although I imagine we`ll be ridiculed for our future forecast specials in 2059 for being unimaginative and dull as well.

    Irony is a bítch, ain`t it.

    The infra-red oven is using what amounts to an effecient heat lamp, and you can buy them at the local department store. E.g., Black & Decker has a couple models they like to hawk as being faster/easier than a traditional oven.

    You know what`s weird? Everything changes EXCEPT moral values. We always expect the future to have better human care, better technology, to be faster and more efficient, but we always predict ethics and general values to stay the same.

    Why is that?

    funny the truth is in our society we don`t need such conviences because we have better coviences than that. Things like fast food chains for instant gratification and microwave ovens. Most people I know rarely cook and when they do they mostly use the microwave.

    "Wow. Before they made predictions they might want to figure out how any of that stuff would actually work. I`m still interested in finding out what would happen if you ate a chicken cooked with infra red waves."

    Two things:
    1) If you want to eat chicken cooked by infrared waves, buy this: http://www.popularmechanics.com/blogs/te...

    2) If people had to know how to actually pull off crazy stuff in the future, it wouldn`t be the future, it`d be the present. The reason such advances are made is because people can imagine things occurring without knowing how they would work...

    Wow, what a big kitchen they expected everyone to have! The chicken cooker alone is the size of most modern kitchens, and where do you keep all those punched cards for the recipes? And how efficient tele-shopping would be, serving thousands of customers by individually showing each of them one product at a time! Boy, some real brains went into thinking about that segment.

    It really isn`t that far off. TV shopping replaced by online supermarket ordering.

    The push button machines are pretty much here for drinks. As for the punch cards...well online recipes and what about all those nintendo DS cooking games.

    The glass that fills from the bottom, that has just been made reality also although not in production yet. The glass infrared cooker, google the nuwave oven. Blenders are now programable for certain dishes as predicted and the induction hob is also here. All in all, not a bad set of predictions if you actually take the time to think about it.

    Wow. Some of that stuff was crap (Punched Cards? LOL, old), but some of it hasn`t been done yet. Perfect glass fridges and ingredient dispensers, my posterior.

    Of all of the things I`ve seen that was supposed to be part of our everyday life in 2000. I haven`t heard of a lot of those.

    Could be worse though, at least we would still cook our food rather than taking a pill.
