A spacious yellow hall connecting galleries and a museum service entrance sits beneath the main rotunda of New York's American Museum of Natural History. A bronze statue of Theodore Roosevelt lounges on a bench in the middle, and Roosevelt-themed dioramas line the walls. It's a hall passed through, a pleasant detour on the way from the life-sized blue whale model to the planetarium.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
