** In ''Literature/HaveSpaceSuitWillTravel,'' there are colonies on the Moon and the hero wins a used space suit in a contest... But the contest is held by the sole sponsor of a (typical) live TV program (a soap company), as in bar soap for washing clothes. By hand. By housewives. Even when RAH wrote it, most of his readers were probably too young to remember that. On top of that the chronically unemployed town ne'er-do-well, "Ace" Quiggle, hangs out at the drugstore soda fountain. Drinking ''[[MaltShop chocolate malts.]]''

* Creator/RichardKMorgan's ''Literature/TakeshiKovacs'' trilogy is an example of how ''fast'' this can happen; Morgan wrote the trilogy from 2002/2005 -- just ''twelve years ago'', but still well before [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_bioprinting 3D bioprinting]] and TheMetaverse became buzzwords -- making his universe's demand for natural aged humans and clones for sleeves look rather quaint. The [[Series/AlteredCarbon Netflix series]] makes good attempts to HandWave this with bioprinters being heavily regulated to prevent "identity theft" and an {{Alternet}} full of stack-annihilating malware.

** The Metroliners are sort-of a defied trope at the moment, however: Between the originals (some of which are still in service 50 years later) and their immediate non-EMU cousins in the Amfleets, the design has largely been "the" intercity passenger railcar design in the Eastern US for two generations...if only because no new equipment has come along to replace them. Ironically, however, the newer railcar designs out there look an ''awful'' lot like the "sleek" designs from a generation before, meaning that the "Zeerust-ish" designs from the 30s-50s are looking more and more like the ''actual'' future.

* Part of ''Series/{{Firefly}}'''s charm is how a lot of the "future tech" weapons look like old fashioned guns. This is exemplified in the episode "Trash", where the high-tech laser gun shown looks like an oversized ''Star Wars'' blaster. Well, it's a SpaceWestern.

More contemporary (InUniverse) laser weapons are still quite boxy, and fall into the AwesomeButImpractical category, running off quickly-depleted batteries. Well, it's a SpaceWestern.

** Speakingf of Television screens: It obviously did not occur to the creators that Televisions would shift to the 16:9 format. In the B5 timeline, all screens are in the old 4:8 format. They imagined a self contained Space station, but not a 16:9 Television screen.
