Television: Eye of Tomorrow 1947 Smartphone Use
J.K. Raymond-Millet’s released a film, Télévision: Oeil de Demain (“Television: Eye of Tomorrow”), in 1947 that seemingly predicted how we would use smartphones in the 21st century. It was not intended to be a feature length film, but rather one used for educational purposes. In addition to showing people using miniature-television devices in public places, the full clip also showcases professional meetings conducted via picture-phones, cars equipped with television screens, and shops promoting their goods on television.



Even before smartphones, this film accurately predicted portable televisions, which made their debut in the 1970s and early 1980s. Panasonic and Sinclair Research introduced the first pocket-sized TVs. Unfortunately, LCD technology was not advanced enough to use in a TV, so these small devices used a miniature CRT.
