Walter Cronkite Tours ‘Home of the Future’
Walter Cronkite’s predictions on the home and home office of the future are spot on, but he misses the mark on the kitchen of the future.
The predictions were pretty much spot-on, including window panes that can turn opaque or transparent at the press of the button.
In the first video, Cronkite tells of the smart home that lets you view the evening programs on the big screen … in 3D … and full color.

The best thing about the office? The man of the house can work at home (while the wife is cooking and cleaning, presumably).
Speaking of cooking, Cronkite totally misses the mark on the kitchen of the future ….
