LOL. Did anything in Popular Science or Popular Mechanics ever turn out as they predicted?

Very nice designs... If you'd gone up a bit you'd have found the FIRST page of the article, which states clearly that these are concepts by famous artist Douglas Rolfe!
May I kindly suggest the title of this topic be edited to reflect this important piece of information? Thanks.
