This attempt to look 1000 years into the future makes you smile. The mental images as you read will be in black and white, reminiscent of Metropolis or old Buck Rogers films. It also promotes, by comparison, a certain awe at the the actual advances of only the past century. Despite being the best futurist of his day, Verne had no idea how fast technology would evolve. I wish he could be here to see it.
