A surprising number of these promo films are aimed at women, and most concern domestic duties. There's a ton of "Kitchens of Tomorrow" and most are kinda' cool.

Despite how stagey and flat the direction is in this little film, and how little actual cooking is done ("In the future, everyone will eat space food!"), the concept of a 'home computer' was pretty new and beyond-cutting-edge in those days. Not to mention the still-fairly-neat concept of a "Smart Kitchen" that regulates your diet.
Really the only part of this that's kind of old-hat is the video intercom system.
