The Jetsons was a 1962 cartoon (that has constantly run in syndication ever since) based on a family of four set in the future. The family lived in Orbit City, which the Jetsons seemingly lived in what was “a floating” luxury apartment that was adjustable in height, they “drove” a flying car, flew around with jetpacks, had a robot named Rosey as a housekeeper and with any and every advanced technological device in the home anyone could imagine.
In pure amusement, we all watched in awe as the cartoon son Elroy and his friends watched TV on their wrists (think Apple Watch). As we all were entertained by the futuristic cartoon, when we look around, all of the technology in the show no longer seems to be as farfetched as it once felt!
