Computopia: A Future Where Computers Teach, Then Beat, Then Heal Japanese Kids

Welcome to Computopia—a 40-year old Japanese vision of how robots might become a part our everyday lives. Complied by Shōnen Sunday magazine, these illustrations depict robots performing surgeries, teaching in a classroom and beating kids for their insolence.

Interestingly enough, there are several technologies depicted in the series that have actually come to fruition (although they are heavily cloaked in a LSD meets The Jetsons meets Lost in Space kind of style). See if you can pick them out of the gallery posted at Pink Tentacle. [Pink Tentacle]
