Yesterday I showed you an opulent classical 19th century utopia, today check out this mad monorail action!

This is a promotional film produced by Bell labs to plug both the 1962 Seattle World's Fair, but also their own products. It's fun and breathless and hopelessly 50s (Despite being 60s) with all that Jetsons Googie architecture. It starts to drag quite a bit when they actually get to the phones, but even this is kind of fascinating - check out the size of that two-pound pager! Or the "Automatic Dialing Phone!" Crazy!
