The future has fascinated people in all periods of history. This is why we always dream of creating a time-travel machine. But we don’t have one now so all we can do is use our imagination. The artists of the past also tried to imagine what the world would look like in the future. They managed to foresee some of the changes, but some have clearly missed the mark.

We at More Shout can’t travel to the future but we traveled to the past to see how the artists of that time imagined the future.

A sound letter — in the past, people already realized how many of us would love sending audio messages.
