Let's enjoy another vision of the future via the past. This time we have a futuristic office composed of a typewriter, television screens, video recorder and a photocopier from an 1969 exhibition in Hanover, Germany. 04/25/1969. We only wish office work felt this much like piloting a starship across the galaxy.
