Robot Workman Assembled in 90 Days
To the astute futurists of 1953 it had already become clear that the future of manufacturing would soon involve highly automated mechanized assembly plants. These plants would be populated by robotic workers who would arrive at the factory right on schedule every day, without hangovers, place their robotic lunchboxes in their lockers in the break room, punch the clock and walk over to the tool rack, grab their soldering irons and get right to work.
At 5:00, they would get in their cars and return to the suburbs, where they would spend the evening with their robotic families.
The near future was also going to involve a whole lot of space travel. Space play was a fun and essential part of preparing the young for their careers as astronauts, and there were plenty of cool youth helmets to choose from.
