Welcome to the Paleofuture blog, where we explore past visions of the future. From flying cars and jetpacks to utopias and dystopias.

Computer Doctor (1982)


This two page spread appears in the 1982 book Health and Medicine (World of Tomorrow).

Patients visiting a doctor in the future first tell the doctor's computer what is wrong with them. The computer may provide a remedy, or tell the patient to go to the next sections to be tested or to give samples. The doctor sees patients who need personal attention.

I can't help but think of a scene in Idiocracy when looking at this image.
