Ray Bradbury died last week and, like many science fiction writers, his technology has become science fact.

Here's an infographic by Ria Novasti that tracks all the technology he predicted that became reality.

What do you think of the infographic? Did Ray Bradbury predict the future?

This is really fascinating! I was so sad to hear that he'd passed. He's the kind of author I always mean to read more of, exactly because of this kind of thing: predicting technology that came about! Thanks for the tribute to him and his genius! :D

He could see the trends!

Didn't Dick Tracy have a wrist radio back in the 30s or something? So I'm not sure you could credit Bradbury with that one.

Alex, he was a visionary

It's because of Ray there are always helicopters flying around? Didn't know that. His vision will be missed.

Bradbury did a good job in forecasting but Robert Heinlein was even better. If you look as his diagrams of Future History it is almost uncanny.
