As you can see, the helicopter, train, tank, airplane and zeppelin are all invented by now.
The architect, the bathroom and barbershop are all things that are partially invented.
Flying policemen, flying firemen and the knowledge machine in schoosl are not (yet) invented but they tend to appear in movies.

These visions were pretty accurate, though the conclusion would be that they thought the technological advancement would be somewhat further than it is now.
