People tend to look towards the future at this time of year what with the New Year and all… Wondering not only what the next year will bring, but the next decade. Perhaps even the next century! With that in mind, here‘s a great interview from 1911 (courtesy of Paleofuture) where Thomas Edison guesses what life will be like for us here in 2011. More after the jump…

Ladies and Gentlemen, we here at LGA Manor are proud to announce the Second Annual Invitational International Croquet Tournament & Symposium! For those who were there last year, we’d be delighted to have you back. For those who couldn’t make it, shame on you! We expect to see you out there this time! Info on the Tournament after the jump!
Whiskey neat or on the rocks?
Gin or Vodka in a martini?
Eggs for breakfast or Bloody Marys for brunch?
These are easy to answer*. The true struggle of man over himself is whether to embrace the proper and accommodating Gentleman or side with the devil may care Adventurer. At no time in recent memory has this psychological tug-of-war been closer to the forefront of modern consciousness than now. The inter-tubes rage over who’s trouser bottom truly belongs in the chap hop throne; Professor Elemental or Mr. B, the Gentleman Rhymer?
The Gents celebrate the new year over Bloody Mary’s to look back at our favorite moments of 2010 and what to look forward to in 2011.
On the Agenda:
1: Opening Toast, presented by Gentleman Jesse
2: Discussion of the highlights (and lowlights) from 2010
3: Announcement of the Gents New Year’s resolutions
4: Closing Toast led by Lee Dunteman
Alright, fashion industry, I take back some of the things I have said about you.
A hot model in a robot dress that makes drinks? This may be a little too soon, but… I love you.
I found this on IO9, hit the link for pics and info. Special thanks to Lauren Davis.
And people label most sci-fi futures “dystopian”. For shame!
