Eyes Without A Face

Outside magazine, maybe in 1981 or 1982, ran an editorial saying that GPS systems would soon be cheap enough to be in the hands of the average outdoors person/backpacker, and how would this change the outdoors experience?

Of course, this came true, first in hand-held dedicated GPS units, and later for everybody with smartphones.

I had the experience of remembering a prediction of the future, after that prediction came true.

This is another phenomenon that has no name in the English language.
