The Future Kitchen 1999 AD

The Future Kitchen 1999 AD

We don't know which is more amusing, the retro-futuristic predictions of this 1967 Philco-Ford Corporation produced short film, "1999 AD", or the smarmy performance of a young Wink Martindale demanding a cheeseburger for lunch from his button-pushing-chef better half. Both are a bit silly, but we really enjoyed checking out all the keen built-in storage and appliances showcased, a marvelous coffee table shown just around the 2:12 mark, and the computer workstation from which "Mom" uses to plan her near-instant prepared meals (flat panels and video chat: bingo!). But thank goodness the envisioned future of gastronomy didn't quite take hold to the degree the video promotes.
