It's Tuesday. What is retrofuturistic?

Nothing screams "retrofuturistic" more than Tomorrowland at Disneyland, a cerca 1956 vision of how "the future" would look.

While Space Mountain and the Star Tours motion simulator are the contemporary highlights of Tomorrowland, the essence of retrofuturism is best embodied by "Autopia," a vision of a utopian future where we all drive our personal automobiles and that wonderful gift to humanity from the Eisenhower administration, The Freeway. And dig the cool Eisenhower era signage to Autopia (if only I could airbrush out the Chevron logo).
