An AT&T commercial from 1993 seemingly predicted many of the technologies we would come to use on a daily basis, specifically the e-book, the tablet, and the GPS.

In the TV spot entitled “View of the Future by AT&T,” a narrator poses a handful of hypothetical questions about how technology would be used on a daily basis in the future.

“[Have you ever] crossed the country without stopping for directions?” asks the narrator.

“Or sent someone a fax from the beach?” he continues. “You will, with the company that will bring it to you, AT&T.”

The 30 second AT&T commercial ran in 1993, and was surprisingly accurate.

Check out the video below!
