Who doesn't like to predict what the future would be like, we've all done it. I'm sure 20 years ago a lot of people didn't have a clue how big touchscreen devices would be and how big the internet would be.
When people think of what the future would be like they do come up with some crazy stuff, like these paintings from 1899. These paintings were created by some French artists from the years 1899, 1900, 1901 and 1910.
The funny thing about these paintings is that robots seem to be helping us do everyday things and we have flying cars - those are things we're still working on, who knows if they'll become widespread.
Weirdly, they thought we'd have flying fireman. Fortunately our firemen are still on the ground rolling around in fire engines.
