Disney’s House of the Future
The House of the Future (also known as the plastic house of the future) at Disneyland, California circa 1957. This is where curious visitors could get a glimpse of how Disney imagined what the future would hold in technology and comfort for the year 1986!
Many (or most) things would probably be regarded as very retro-future-kitschy today, but one gadget that was eventually shown and came true, was the microwave oven.
The house was open until 1967 when the it was demolished to make room for other projects. Parts of the construction was so sturdy seeing it was rated for earthquakes it was impossible to remove it and couple of the remaining pillars for the house can still be seen in Neptune’s Grotto in the park.
