This goofy Apple Computer video from 1987 has futuristic gadgets that we’re still waiting for


The 1987 video, which can be viewed on YouTube, is clearly meant to be tongue-in-cheek, but it shows viewers an amazing world of technological innovation with a handful of things that we actually got.

The video shows Apple payphone stations that communicate with satellites in space (at least they got the satellite part right), and something called the Vista Mac II, eyewear that doubles as a computer (something that we’re still waiting on, sadly). And there’s so much more.

If you were around Apple in 1987, you can be forgiven for believing this was a viable future for the company in ten years. The reality was much less rosy though.
