Course Detail: FOLL - Follies of Science: 20th Century Visions of Our Fantastic Future
The outrageous, imaginative, and often misguided dreams of tomorrow were bursting with robots, atomic cars, and foam houses. Minnesota author Eric Dregni will lead us through the utopian dreams of the future, some of them horribly unwise, but others fantastic and visionary even by today's standards. While we didn't get household jetpacks and personal robots to serve us drinks by the pool, we did get things like the super-fantastic building materials of the future -- asbestos, lead, and foam. Take a fascinating look back at the future!
