100 years ago, Edison predicted various things. Most of the manifest, except one.
Who does not know Thomas Alva Edison. U.S. major innovator of this is the one who found the camera, light bulb, and direct current power plant.
In 1911 Edison was interviewed by the Miami Metropolis, and asked to predict how the next 100 years, namely in 2011.
As quoted by the Washington Post, Edison said that in 2011 electric power would replace steam power to drive the train. In addition, he also predicts that air travel would be a mode of everyday transportation.
Another thing, Edison also said that the steel will be more expensive and this makes it will be a plurality of raw materials for building construction. All the things he predicted earlier, now it has been proven.
But Edison was the most shocking prophecy is prophecy about a device similar to an e-book reader or iPad. "Later, there will be a book that is only two inches thick, but can contain 40 thousand pages, or the equivalent of one hundred volumes of books," said Edison.
In fact, an e-book reader like the Amazon Kindle can store data equivalent to approximately 3,500 electronic books.
However, Edison did not guess exactly 100 percent. At that time, Edison also predicts, that now people have found ways to turn iron into gold.
Therefore, Edison said, humans can 'juggle' a taxi into the gold car. Unfortunately, until now it still can be done by humans.
