Weird Futuristicky Stuff

If I were in NYC, I'd see this exhibit.  
Kraftwerk – Retrospective at MOMA
A presentation of Kraftwerk’s historical audio and visual material is on view at MoMA PS1, April 12–May 14, 2012.
This video is really creepy and awesome:

I love bizarre-o depictions of the future as seen from the past, where everyone is all robotic and speaking in quasi-electronic voices. It reminds me of the book Future Shock. I love how the font screams, "I'm terrified of how electronicky and computerized, yet oddly 70's-ish the future is going to be." 
A documentary based on Future Shock came out in 1972 and features Orson Welles as the narrator. You can watch it here. It's creepy and hilarious. Enjoy!
Futuristically and robotically yours,
ME.
