The future might already be written. Cheer, shudder, or eye-roll in disgust, but history shows that what awaits us is often spelled out in the pages of science fiction. The genre’s predictive track record stretches thousands of years. Here’s a glimpse of what sci-fi writers of the past got right:

1) Defibrillators (Frankenstein)
2) Space Stations (The Brick Moon)
3) Machine Learning (Erewhon)
4) Lab-grown Meat (Mizora)
5) Long-term Heat Storage (Sultana’s Dream)
6) TASERs (Tom Swift and his Electric Rifle)
7) Portable Audio (Fahrenheit 451)
