Kaum zu glauben, aber schon 1919 hat Zeichner W.K. Haselden das Handy vorausgesagt (inklusive der Unannehmlichkeiten). Daily Mirror 05. März 1991

W K Haselden - Handy 1919


Auch Nikola Tesla sagte 1926 in einem Interview das SmartPhone (inkl. FaceTime) voraus:
When wireless is perfectly applied the whole earth will be converted into a huge brain, which in fact it is, all things being particles of a real and rhythmic whole. We shall be able to communicate with one another instantly, irrespective of distance.

Not only this, but through television and telephony we shall see and hear one another as perfectly as though we were face to face, despite intervening distances of thousands of miles; and the instruments through which we shall be able to do his will be amazingly simple compared with our present telephone. A man will be able to carry one in his vest pocket.

In der U- und S-Bahn muss ich regelmäßig an Windsor McCay denken, der bereits 1907 die Werbung in den Stationen dieser Transportmittel persifliert hat.
