1928 __ Future radio
Giacomo Balla (1871-1958)
Comment : Giacomo Balla speculated that in the future radio would have the ability « to multiply life by reducing the effort of animal life to its lowest and to speed up a hundredfold the creative work of genius ? The network of communications, simplified and multiplied, would lead the intensity of life into an atmosphere which is for the moment inconceivable. ».
