Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

The Internet in 1969

Written by Christopher • September 8th, 2010

Very kitschy and retro futuristic video explaining some of the features and benefits of using home computers (consoles) in the home. With this fantastic setup that would make William Shatner of Star Trek fame envious, you can do amazing things such as online clothes shopping and monitor the home using a CCTV system.

Apparently the only thing the husband can do on his console is to pay for everything that his wife buys. However, I find it amazing that they got many things pretty much spot on.

What is your favorite thing to do online?
