* The original run of ''Series/TheTwilightZone'' had a few episodes about space travel which had this mixed in with then-current tech. Episode "Third from the Sun" contained a shapely rotary phone and a spaceship that navigated with a suspended model of itself (as if to show orientation).

* Deliberately invoked in ''Series/TheFlash2014'' for Earth-2. Although the year is the same as on "our" Earth, the buildings and vehicles are ArtDeco 1920s/1930s in appearance, most of the civilian fashions (especially women) look to be from the 1940s/1950s, and Jay Garrick's Flash costume looks like a 1930s/1940s pulp adventurer's with the leather jacket and a helmet design (stated to have originally been his father's combat helmet) taken out of American Army service prior to WorldWar2.

** While we are in the {{DCAU}}, the idea of zeerust was deconstructed in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanMaskOfThePhantasm''; in a flashback, Bruce and Andrea are shown having a wonderful time visiting the Gotham World's Fair, with its lively and optimistic view of the future with standard things such as robot butlers. When the fair is revisited in the present, [[spoiler:it is in ruins, seemingly paralleling Bruce and Andrea's future, and serves as the final battleground for the two former lovers and the Joker.]]

Sometimes Zeerust is present in {{Retraux}} form. May lead to ZeerustCanon over time.

Compare TheAestheticsOfTechnology, CrystalSpiresAndTogas, IWantMyJetPack, HollywoodHistory, PunkPunk, SteamNeverDies, SchizoTech, ScienceMarchesOn, TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture, RetroUniverse. Contrast with NewWeird. When the creators actually predict what the future holds ''correctly,'' then it's LifeImitatesArt.






* VideoPhone. At least the dedicated hardware landline ones we never found it worth springing for.

Added DiffLines:

* In the fifties through seventies, politicians loved brutalist architecture because they wanted to be associated with an idealized vision of the future. It became dated quickly, and many people found it to be, well, brutal.

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/{{Headlander}}'', you wake up from cryosleep as a disembodied head in the future. Or at least what a person living in the 1970s' thought the future would be like.
