Thinking about the future fascinates one and all. People living in the 20th century were noisy about what the future would hold. French artist Jean-Marc Ct and his colleagues made an attempt to encapsulate the futuristic year of 2000 through some playful illustrations, released in four installments - in 1899, 1900, 1901, and 1910–and took the form of cigarette/cigar box inserts and, later, postcards.

The illustrations made were far-fetched at the time; the concepts depict close calls to the technology we use today. Some Advanced technological tools, like when manufacturing clothes, sweeping the floor, and harvesting a farm. Delivering mail and putting out fires was predicted to be done in mid-air. They even have electric roller skates and rolling houses.

A series of at least 87 cards were first produced for the 1900 World Exhibition in Paris. However, they lacked widespread distribution. Science-fiction author Isaac Asimov revived them and published them as a book titled Future days.
