From a student:

200 years ago, the framers probably thought we’d all be driving flying cars by now.

I’m pretty sure that’s mentioned somewhere in Madison’s Notes on the Federal Convention.

    Are you sure your student didn’t mean flying slaves?

    An interesting prediction since the train didn’t exist yet.
