1966: By 1976 we will have ROBOT HOUSEKEEPERS | Tomorrow’s World | Past Predictions

Old UK

Meet Able Mabel, the incredible robotic housekeeper, whose only function is to make your life more leisurely. She’ll make your tea (milk, no sugar thanks), run your bath, make your bed, do the vacuuming, shine your shoes, dust your ornaments, cook your dinner and do the dishes afterwards, walk the dog, mind the baby, do the shopping, check the bill from your Paris dress designer (we’ve all got one), mix cocktails, answer the door, defend your property from burglars and even do that most soul-crushing chore of all, the ironing. Yours for just £500.
