Bordo nailed it. These are generous connections at best. All of the conveniences predicted here were already developed, present, or being inspired in some way back in 1964. Asimov wasn't dreaming of our 2014, he was envisioning a hyper-exaggerated reality where those few conveniences dominated every day like like the jetsons.

We`re not there yet.

I remember 1964. All or virtually all of these predictions were either mere extrapolations from what was already happening or are being misrepresented here. we do not have moving sidewalks except in places like airports and escalators were already around in 1964 and before.

I really love Asimov, but this video obviously selectively reports his correct predictions and leaves out all his incorrect speculations. If he was right about everything, then robots could not harm a human, nor through inaction allow a human to come to harm.

That should have been on the 50 question Geek Test the other day - quote Asimov's three laws of robotics.
