Visions of the future?

| | Comments (10)

A year ago, TIME published a list of innovations that were predicted to change our lives, but haven't quite had the impact some imagined.

Among the items from "future that wasn't": a jet-propelled backpack that appeared in a 1969 issue of Popular Science. There's a fabulous image of a person in retro-futuristic garb, seemingly flying through mist over a mountain range.

Enjoy.
