10 Books About the Future that Have Come True - Vintage Value Investing

Those books include:

   1. Morgan Robertson “Titan.”

14 years before the death of the “Titanic,” an unknown American writer for that time wrote the novel “Futility.” The book describes the crash of a huge liner called “Titan.” After the death of the Titanic, the author of the novel, Morgan Robertson, was named one of the greatest prophets of the 20th century.

     2. Ray Bradbury “Fahrenheit 451”.

Ray Bradbury, at his time, “invented” the most popular for nowadays format of headphones – the so-called “droplets.” In his book, “Fahrenheit 451” he described them in the next way: “In the ears, there are the most turtles “, the radio receivers-the sleeves are sized like a thimble, and the ocean of electronic sounds – music and voices, music and voices – spills on the shores of its insomnia brain”. A novel is written in the 1950s, and he has already mentioned the future headphones.

     3. Herbert Wells “The Fired World.”

The phrase “atomic bomb” was first used by writer Herbert Wells. It appeared on the pages of his work “The Fired World.” Interestingly, the book was published in 1913. That is, before the beginning of the First World War. As you know, the bomb itself was applied only at the end of the Second World War, in 1945.

     4. Arthur Conan Doyle “Sherlock Holmes.”

Arthur Conan Doyle in the stories about Sherlock Holmes described many methods of criminology, which were unknown to the police before. Among them, the collection of cigarette butts and cigarette ash, identification of typewriters, examining the magnifying glass traces in place of the event. Subsequently, these and other Holmes methods became widely used by the police.

     5. Gogol “Dead Souls.”

In Gogol’s “Dead Souls,” a brilliant criminal scheme is presented. The protagonist bought something that is not in fact, but it is on paper. The modern practice of “left” orders to contractors starts when money goes to work, which is performed only on documents.

   6. Chuck Palahniuk “The Fight Club.”

In Chuck Palahniuk’s “The Fight Club,” the organization became the place where people honestly split their emotions. All ingenious is simple! The idea was so much in demand that, after the release of screening, there were underground in many cities of the world (and sometimes legal) analogs of the club. Many of them exist to this day.

     7. Friedrich Nietzsche “Thus Spake Zarathustra.”

The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche in his essay “Thus spake Zarathustra” marked the idea of “Superman.” People according to this theory were not the ultimate achievement of nature, but only the leader of a higher race – the race of super people. This idea was then actively developed by Adolf Hitler, who claimed that such a race is Aryan.

     8. Jules Verne “20,000 Leagues Under the Water”.

Jules Verne in the book “20,000 Leagues Under the Water” described a new type of vessel – a submarine. In those days (1869 year), the idea of a “deep ship” was only nascent, and “Nautilus” became the embodiment of technological progress. His name became the most popular among the submarines. Because of him, Jules Verne began to be called “the father of submarines.” Incidentally, in honor of Nautilus, electronic devices, computers, spacecraft, as well as restaurants, hotels, rock groups and sports clubs are still called like this.

      9. Artem Senatorov and Oleg Logvinov, “Asetskaya Russia”.

In the utopia of Artem Senatorov and Oleg Logvinov “Sovetskaya Russia,” the usual machines for replenishing accounts on mobile differed in their original service. After making the bills, on the screen appeared suggestions to play the game “odd-odd.” After winning, the amount you made could be doubled. Losing leads to a loss of money. Thus, the children “let down” all pocket money, the elderly – a pension. In reality, such an idea was truly debated, but after the legislative restriction in the country, the gambling business quickly calmed down.

     10. “Armada” by Ernest Cline: 3-D Drone Printing.

Ernest Cline himself has this to say on the subject of predicting the future: “The future is happening so fast now it’s getting more and more difficult to stay ahead of it. Armada’s plot line involves two concepts—quantum data teleportation and 3-D drone printing. That was still science fiction when he started the book and then became a proven reality before he finished it.

Many of us read science fiction stories being a child. Along with the heroes of these stories, they traveled to the moon, reinvented new things and dreamed of what at that time, it would seem, could never have been. It took a little time and all the science fiction, from the fantasy books, became a reality.
