DIY a reusable notebook cover with pockets

Brand new school supplies are one of life’s great joys. The smell of a fresh pack of pencils, the feeling of tearing the plastic off a stack of pristine notebook paper.  Ahhh. Can we repeat 3rd grade, please? Designer and maker extraordinaire Ceri Staziker stops by the blog today to show us how to make custom, personalized notebook covers so your kid can feel like the coolest in the room on day one. Read on for the quick and simple how-to. 

Ceri: This is an easy tutorial for sewing a notebook cover. It works with any fabric, and is a great opportunity for personalization by using Spoonflower to print your own design. This particular design is very easy to set up as it is simply a series of ruled lines, imitating notepaper!

The covers make great gifts and were originally conceived as end-of-year teacher gifts. They are reusable, and machine washable.

You will need:  

  • A hard-back notebook (spiral bound works best).
  • Half a yard of fabric — you may need more or less depending on the size of the notebook. I was able to print covers for two A5 notebooks on a yard of Basic Cotton Ultra ($15.75)
  • Iron-on (fusible) interfacing — enough for two pockets.

How to calculate the dimensions of your pattern pieces:

  1. Measure the width of your opened notebook (A).  Decide on the desired width of your inner flaps (B).
  2. A plus B plus B plus 3″ = fabric width for outer and inner covers.
  3. Measure the height of your notebook (C). C + 1.5 inches = fabric height for outer and inner covers.
  4. B minus 1/2 inch = width of pocket fabric (height of pocket can be anything you want as long as its less than C).

How to sew your notebook cover:

4. Cut out an OUTER COVER, an INNER COVER and two POCKETS.5. Iron on the interfacing to the wrong side of both POCKETS. This will make them sturdier and will stop the raw edges inside the pockets from fraying.

6. Fold over 1/4 inch hems on all edges of the pockets and press. Machine sew along the top edge of each pocket. Press again.

7. Pin the pockets onto the right side of the OUTER COVER. Position the pockets 1 inch away from the side edges (see image below).

8. Machine sew, close to the edges along three sides, leaving the top open to form the pocket. 

9. Placing right sides together, pin the OUTER COVER to the INNER COVER.

10. Machine sew along all four edges (seam allowance 1/2 inch), leaving a gap of about 4 inches for turning. Clip the corners.

11. Press seams open and turn the covers the right way around and press. There is NO NEED to sew up the open gap.

12. Fold in the covers to create two flaps. The overall width should now be 2 inches wider than your open notebook. Pin in place.

13. Machine topstitch along all edges. The open gap will be automatically sewn closed. Press.

14. Insert the notebook covers into the flaps. You’re finished! For more back-to-school projects, check out our Pinterest board full of DIY’s and other quick projects.

Ecolife Recycling – How to Recycle Notebooks & Journals

An Overview on Recycling Notebooks and Journals

By Maryruth Belsey Priebe

Aspiring writers, pensive teens, and business people all use journals and notebooks to jot down ideas, confess their deepest, darkest secrets, and express creativity. And sure, there are many ways notebooks are useful in our lives, but when it comes time to get rid of them, they can be a bit of a recycling challenge. But no more! With our guide to recycling journals and notebooks, you’ll never have to wonder again how to turn your spent words into new materials.

Reduce notebook and journal use

Precycling is perhaps the best way to recycle your notebooks and journals before they experience the first stroke of your pen. Try using these tips for reducing your dependency on the written word:

  • Journal your daily thoughts by using a software-based word processor. Not only will you be able to save space, you can search your journal entries for past wisdom much more easily this way!
  • Take notes in class using a laptop instead of a notebook.
  • If you can’t live without the feeling of hand writing, try a tablet computer that allows you to use a stylus to get your thoughts down digitally.
  • Use a voice recorder to collect your thoughts and record to-dos for yourself audibly.
  • Get a smartphone that allows you to keep track of tasks and appointments digitally.

How to recycle spiral notebooks

Thought many ask, “can you recycle notebooks?” the answer is most definitely, “Yes!” Recycling journals and notebooks can be relatively simple when you understand the various components.

  • Metal and plastic coils: Some advanced recycling systems will allow you to throw the paper and metal or plastic binding portion of a notebook into the blue bin still bound together. The metal will be separated from the paper during the recycling process. Just be sure to find out one way or another before assuming it’s okay to not disassemble your notebooks. If you do need to remove them, see our tips below for how to recycle notebook coils.
  • Plastic covers: These should always be removed from notebooks for recycling as they will contaminate a batch of paper recycling. Sometimes this portion of the plastic can be recycled separately, but you should ask your recycling personnel to be sure.
  • Cardboard covers: Depending on how your recycling services handle cardboard, you may be able to leave the cardboard and paper bound together as they are often processed similarly. Give your local recycling facility a call to find out their preference.
  • Paper: The paper portion of most notebooks can be recycled with your regular mixed paper or office paper recycling, even after you’ve written on it. This can also be composted with your regular compost pile or in your worm bin as long as you’ve used vegetable-based or soy-based inks to write on the paper.

How to remove the coil from a spiral-bound notebook

Whether your notebooks is bound together with a plastic or metal coil, you should remove this portion of the notebook before recycling the paper and the cover. Here are two methods for removing a notebook’s coil you can try:

  • Unwind: Start by securing the notebook on a counter or table with the coil hanging over the edge. Weigh it down with a heavy object and then find the crimped parts (at each end) of the coil. Snip off both crimped portions and then start to pull the coil out of the holes. It should unspiral until the whole thing comes free.
  • Pull: Many types of plastic coils have separate “rings” for each hole in your journal or notebook. That means removing it can be as easy as pulling the coil from the bound-side of your journal. The pages should all be separate and ready to recycle.

Once your coil is free, here are some suggestions for how to reuse the coil:

  • Cut the coil to a few inches, then bending it at one end make Christmas ornament hangers
  • Make homemade paperclips
  • Twist the wire so that is turns into a dipper for decorating Easter eggs
  • Use the wire to create jewelry
  • Use it as the wire for hanging pictures
  • Attach something fun to the end to create an interesting, bobbly garden ornament
  • Create miniature dollhouse books
  • Donate plastic coils to schools or photocopy shops for reuse

If you can’t reuse your notebook coil, you may be able to recycle it. If your coil is metal, it should be recyclable with your other metal materials. Plastic coils can often also be recycled depending on the type of plastic used. Check with your local recycling facilities to ensure whether this is acceptable in your curbside bin.

How to make a cover-cover for a tablet from a notebook in a hard cover

Electronics and various gadgets have become an integral part of our life.Almost every home has several phones, a laptop or tablet. The market for accessories for electronics does not stand still either, everyone can choose a case or cover for their tablet or phone. True, the prices for these seemingly easy-to-manufacture accessories are unreasonably high.

Modern tablets are so compact that they can be compared in size to a general notebook, and this is what prompted the idea of ​​creating a cover for a tablet from a notebook in a hard cover.

Materials and tools for making the cover cover:

  • a hardcover notebook of a suitable size
  • tablet box (in our case iPad 2)
  • several hair or rubber bands
  • stationery knife
  • superglue
  • thread with a needle

How to make a cover-cover for a tablet with your own hands

Using a clerical knife, separate the pages of the notebook from the hard cover.

Remove the plastic insert that contained the tablet in the box. On the side of the plastic insert, mark the height of the notebook.

Draw a line indicating the height of the notebook along all the side edges of the plastic insert.

Using a utility knife, cut out the bottom of the plastic insert as well as one side edge.

Cut off a portion of the two remaining corners.

Using a knife, mark the fold lines on the three sides of the plastic insert.Be guided by the markings applied.

Fold the walls inward, cutting the corners so that they do not overlap.

Place the plastic insert on the bottom of the cover, adjust the position of the three walls so that you can easily insert the tablet inside.

Secure the insert with super glue.

Take two thin hair ties (color of your choice), cut them and sew on the corners of the cover.

Important : it is necessary to sew the elastic bands carefully so that they do not fall off during operation and ensure reliable fixation of the tablet.

Cut off the excess ends of the elastic bands.

Sew the long elastic close to the spine of the cover.

Cut the elastic flush.

We got a stylish cover for a tablet, which cost a penny. If you get tired of such a cover, it will not be a pity to throw it away and make a new one. The plastic insert and rubber bands can be reused.

Over time, the laptop is covered with “battle scratches” even from “not handy” owners.It is not surprising. Plastic is not durable. It is damaged from contact with solid objects – this is the law of physics.

But the pliability of the plastic coating has the other side of the coin, the scratches can be easily removed. And this is a life-tested life hack, more precisely, several proven technologies that allow you to remove a deep scratch or scuff from the laptop’s coating. We will tell and show you how this is done.

Remove Scratches With DIY Computer Scratch Remover

The term “DIY Computer Scratch Remover” means the use of improvised means – you do not need to run around the shops with it in search of a miracle cure.All the necessary ingredients for this rescue method are usually available at home.

For this you will need:

  • Wet wipes for monitors and microfiber for cleaning office equipment. By the way, the manufacturer 2E has a good range of products in this regard;
  • toothpaste without abrasive particles and whitening effect. Abrasives will scratch and whitening paste may cause discoloration;
  • An old toothbrush or a soft bristled toothbrush.

Remove scratches from plastic in five steps.

  1. Remove the stickers from the laptop cover.
  2. Clean the wall of the laptop with damp computer wipes. Regular ones will not work, as they contain alcohol, oils and fragrances. They, in turn, lead to “rainbow” stains that spoil the appearance of technology.
  3. Wipe the surface with a microfiber cloth to dry and permanently remove any dust particles.
  4. Squeeze a pea of ​​toothpaste onto the brush.
  5. Start rubbing into the cleaned area. A thin layer of toothpaste will fill in the voids resulting from scratches. This will keep your laptop looking refreshed.

Remove scratches with plastic varnish

“Plastic Varnish” can be found in any art store. On the Internet, they can be found on the request “acrylic varnish for plastic” – then the search engine will offer dozens of options.It is better to buy with a matte degree of gloss, because it is easy to leave marks or new scratches on the gloss. The matte surface hides imperfections.

The cleaning algorithm fits into 4 steps.

  1. Pour 2-3 teaspoons of nail polish on a dry microfiber cloth.
  2. Rub the varnish on the lid of the laptop in a circular motion, gradually adding new portions to the fabric if necessary.
  3. After the varnish has repaired the scratches on the lid, cover it with a clean, lint-free cloth.Otherwise, dust will settle on the surface, which, when the mixture dries, is “sealed” in the body.
  4. After a few hours – when the varnish is completely dry – you can remove the fabric.

A restoration pencil can also be used. Previously, such a “savior” was used by car owners, now there are pencils for household appliances and furniture. You can get rid of scratches on your laptop according to the following instructions.

  1. The surface is cleaned with damp wipes.
  2. Dotted with a pencil, grout is applied to scratches (in exactly the same way as it is done with a proofreader when correcting text).
  3. Wipe the surface and cover with a lint-free cloth until dry.

The process is repeated until the scratches are gone. Usually 2-3 approaches are enough.

Protection against future scratches

After the laptop has visually “rejuvenated”, it is worth preventing the appearance of new scratches.

This can be done in 3 ways described in the table:

If desired, any laptop can be visually “rejuvenated” by removing scratches from the plastic. The main thing in this process is not to rush anywhere and to do every action meaningfully. Then the result will definitely please.

now protects vehicles from the cat

I have a cat named Silver.Once we bought a new expensive TV for our apartment. Until we got the wall mounts, we just put it on the floor. The TV served us well for about two months – until one day the cat bit it, damaging the matrix.

Apparently, Silver got bored alone at home, and he decided to try the corner of the TV by mouth. The refurbishment would have cost as much as a new TV, so the expensive purchase had to be thrown away. The beast is alive. But the story of how our cat ate the telly is now one of our favorites.

When, a few months after that incident, my husband bought himself a new computer, it was necessary to see how he packed the monitor and the system unit before leaving for work. The desktop turned into a fortress made of boxes. But what to do – life made me.

Now if we buy a new TV again, we will definitely immediately hang it on the wall.

treated the damage philosophically

We have a Sphynx cat. One day, he knocked an expensive 50-inch smart TV off the bedside table and smashed the screen.

These expenses cannot be avoided – everything has already happened. Now we put the TV in a different place.

As soon as my husband and I felt stability in life, we immediately got a kitten. We dreamed of a Scottish Fold cat, always gray and white, as in the Whiskas advertisement, and with its ears hanging.

I was looking for a kitten on Avito. We were not ready to pay more than 5000 R for a cat. As a result, it turned out that the price of cats with erect and hanging ears was very different. The difference started somewhere around 5000 R and went up to quite decent amounts – depending on the nursery.Therefore, we decided to buy a cat of the breed we needed, but with erect ears. We followed her to the nursery in Dmitrov. So we got our fluffy gray miracle – Milagres, in everyday life – Milasha.

She turned out to be a very intelligent cat, but therefore she has a complex character. And the most expensive offense she committed was when she pushed off the curbstone almost a new TV, which we bought for 55,000 R. It was New Year’s time, so we decided that we would not postpone buying a new one to replace it. Another TV set cost us 110,000 RR – and we took a kitten for 5,000 RR.

But now in our house there is not a single TV set that stands on a pedestal. I insisted that we hang all the equipment on the wall: so Milagres under no circumstances will be able to reach it.

Our cats once destroyed a TV set that cost 30,000 R. Its repair cost another 15,000 R. Now I am more closely following the movements of these Herods.


likes to help

Found a dog on the street and took it for overexposure while looking for new owners.The dog was a fighting breed and rather heavy. At some point, he decided to sit with me on the couch, on which the tablet was lying at that time. I just heard a crunch, and then I saw that the screen was pushed through and cracked in several places.

I sold the tablet for spare parts, found a new home for the dog. Now, of the pets in the house, only my girlfriend’s cat, I’m not going to start others. But if anyone needs help, I will definitely help again.


does not leave the laptop unattended

One day my husband went to open the door for me and left an open MacBook in the room – a new, latest model.And when he returned, our cat had already gnawed through the glass in the corner of the screen. Apparently, before that, he rubbed against him, as they usually do, and he gnawed inadvertently.

The restoration of the screen cost us 60,000 R. But now I don’t even know how to restore my husband’s nerves.

From now on we have a dedicated laptop cabinet, and we never leave them open, even if we turn away for a minute.

My cat Vinchik loves to gnaw everything. One day I turned on the music on my laptop and went to clean.When I returned two minutes later, I saw my brand new MacBook with a black screen and a hole. Vinchik scratched his teeth …

From now on, I close the laptop lid even when I step back two steps.

Battery charger

I have a welsh corgi cardigan Monty, he is a little less than a year old. We do not worry at all about the damaged furniture and shoes. The only thing that shook my peace of mind a little was when Monty gnawed through a MacBook charger an hour after buying it. I had to spend 2000 R for a new cable.


I have a half-British cat named Watson. He loves to chew on things, especially when we are not at home. He has five original “apple” charging cables, six headphones, including an expensive Jabra work headset and friends’ headphones, as well as a bunch of various other wires, including the Internet.

Watson also gnawed on bags, sandals – mine and the girls, the corners of the dresser and wardrobe. But all this is forgiven him and is remembered with a laugh. But what I can’t forget is that he turned on the electric stove twice with his paws.It’s good that I was at home and had time to turn it off.

In general, now I no longer store my headphones in the public domain and lock the stove with a child lock.

Wallpaper & Walls

I had a fresh renovation with beautiful wallpaper and a cat Zinaida, who loves to prove to everyone that at the age of eight she is a kitten who jumps high and defiantly. As a result, the wallpaper, which was painted in a wonderful beige color, was adorned with a unique multidirectional pattern, so the cat came up with it, she is an artist.I wanted a loft – get it, please.

I had to buy paint and revive the wallpaper. I wanted to force the cat to paint, but there was no suitable roller. Gradually, the cat introduced the habit of jumping not on walls, but simply in space.

When my dog ​​was little, he often threw “parties” at home and ruined things. In a little over a year, after the end of adolescence, as the grandmother whispered, nothing more spoils anything.

The total amount of home damage from this hairy ass is at least 50,000 R.I gnawed on shoes, which I accidentally forgot to put away, wires and some personal belongings. I destroyed the walls in the hallway, which I then completely repaired when the dog was already grown up.

Now I hide only the most valuable shoes – for example, I leave slippers without fear. Over the past year and a half, not a single slipper has suffered, like other things. True, sometimes I find the dog’s slippers on the couch – apparently, he drags them off at the moment of my leaving and sleeps on them. The walls don’t taste good to her either.


We live in our own house. Last spring, a neighbor’s dog was in heat and our dog decided to run away to her while we were at work. While looking for a way to get out of the house, he tore the tulle on all the windows and smashed the flower pots, and also scratched the double-glazed windows. As a result, he climbed onto the sofa, opened the window with his teeth, jumped out and, breaking down the fence, ran away. The neighbors knew us, called and said where he was.

The husband straightened the fence himself. It cost us 3000 R to replace the tulle, 2000 RUR for new flower pots.The glasses have not been changed yet – it will cost about 30,000 R. We are just trying not to pay attention to scratches for now.


We have a Canadian Sphynx. Once he got his new curtains dirty with dirty paws after using the toilet. Fortunately, the curtains were being removed. But the biggest damage from it is a new light sofa worth 110,000 R, which we bought even before the cat appeared. I wanted him for so long, but now I realized that it was so-so desire. The cat likes to jump on it, it clings with its claws to the soft material and leaves puffs on the sofa, which then it also likes to pull out with its teeth.

This is my biggest pain. We put silicone pads on the cat’s claws, and cover the sofa with a blanket, but the look is not the same. Deep down, I have already come to terms with the idea that the sofa will have to be pulled. Love for bald and bald for us pays off.

does not release rats from the cage

One of my rats learned to open the cage door – of course, this happened in my absence. Upon returning from work, a gnawed sofa and three sly rat muzzles under it awaited me.

A protective carabiner now hangs on the cage door. The animals are still trying steadily to open the door – but in vain.

will no longer buy leatherette furniture

I have a cat called Virgil and a cat called Myrtha, who constantly gnawed on something when she was little – now this happens rarely. At first, we were upset and could reprimand her, constantly chased her away and prevented her from gnawing things. From purchases instead of spoiled and torn apart – a plastic holder for pens in the shape of an elephant, from which she gnawed off the trunk, new rolls of toilet paper.

Everything else that was gnawed and perforated was already simply slaughtered. Complete humility and indifference came. Broke, scratched – well, okay. The only thing is that we will never again buy leatherette furniture for a house with animals.

We have four Maine Coons – three cats and a cat. All four love water, but the most ambitious story happened because of the cat Ra, who loves to stomp in it. We have an additional tap for filtered water in our kitchen. We open it so that the water flows in a thin stream and the cats can drink.Ra likes to hook his paw on the faucet and turn it so that the water pours onto the countertop. Each time such a maneuver is promptly suppressed.

Once we were woken up by a doorbell at six in the morning. They were neighbors from two floors below us: they were flooded. One of the cats opened the tap at night, and Ra turned it on the countertop. The kitchen set was damaged – the cabinet itself under the sink, its doors and the doors of the adjacent cabinet, as well as the baseboards, a little – wallpaper, swollen laminate. The neighbors actually got by with a small spot on the ceiling, since they have not yet made repairs in the kitchen.

Our apartment is insured, but the insurance does not cover the risks from animals. Nevertheless, I still submitted a request and brought an act from the manager of the cooperative with the conclusion that the cats were to blame for the accident. Surprisingly, we were lucky and the insurance paid 50% of the damage, defining it as the damage we created through inattention. We were refunded 1037 €. This amount was enough to fix everything, and even left for a sandwich with butter.

We are now trying to turn off the water for the night, even though the tap is inconveniently located for this.In the future, if we move, we will place it in a more accessible place. I also plan to buy insurance with a wider coverage so that the risks from animals are also included in it.

Clothes and footwear

I lived with two dogs, and when I moved in with a guy, he brought another one. Our cute little dog is called Borya. He is a fox terrier, his fetish is to gnaw, bite and chew something. Surprisingly, the furniture has never been damaged – apparently, our clothes are tastier, especially those things that are more expensive.

Every time we thought: “Oh, what can happen in 10 minutes while we go out to get some bread?” – a lot of things were happening. Eaten new sneakers for 20,000 RUR, chewed up receipts for a communal apartment, stolen clothes from a laundry basket. Borya encroaches exclusively on what is dear and beloved: once they locked him in a room while a courier was climbing into the apartment. In five minutes, the dog ripped open the sleeves of the R8,000 hoodie, and it would have been fine if it hadn’t been for a cool local brand that a guy had given me a month earlier when we were on vacation.

When Borya was smaller, he learned to move the chairs in the kitchen so that he could climb onto the table from them. My enthusiastic work in another room and an oversight somehow ended up smashing my boyfriend’s favorite mug and plates from the ikeevsky set. Borya just climbed onto the table and had a delicious breakfast with pancakes and cocoa. This was repeated several more times – and always with smashing dishes and my broken nervous system.

We constantly did something so that the dog did not gnaw things and did not smoke badly: he sucked the laces on the shoes – we put them in the closet, chews everything that lies on the table in the hallway – we replace it with closed hanging boxes.When the dog climbed the chairs on the table, they tied them together with a scooter lock. But who would have thought that surrounded by a heap of toys, Bore would want to rip the zipper on the cover of the couch, tear the pillow and chew the synthetic winterizer?

Bed linen

remembers the mistakes of each of his dogs

With the first dog, I had little problems in his puppyhood: he ate new shoes, slippers and a carpet. The second dog ruined only a couple of Ikea sets – gobbled up the corners and made holes in the middle of the duvet cover, as in the old versions of bedding.

Immediately after the move, our cat Plush was worried about the new litter box, so the first five times she went to the wrong litter box. The sheets, the kitchen floor and the mattress in the master’s apartment were damaged. Only the sheets and the floor were washed, the mattress had to be dry-cleaned. Gradually I came to an agreement with the cat about where to relieve himself.


Maria Knyazeva
left without a supply of medicines

Our pet is a gray parrot named Margot.To maintain a comfortable lifestyle, such parrots need a good spacious cage – ours cost 30,000 R. In addition, outside the cage, the parrot should have several special attachments, that is, large wooden perches on which he could spend time comfortably and not damage furniture and other things. Margot has two such perches, each cost about 6000 R.

Nevertheless, one day Margot opened the cage anyway, went out and gnawed almost all of my supply of rather expensive medicines.I had to urgently give her a gastric lavage from a syringe. The parrot did not understand at all what was causing all the commotion, and he felt great.

Another time I fell asleep on the couch, and Margo, freely walking around the apartment, gnawed at the wire of the radio that I had bought for her. I woke up from a flash and when I examined the bird, I noticed that its beak was charred and stinks of burning. The parrot was very lucky that she did not touch the wire with her tongue. But she herself felt great again – unlike me, who had added gray hair.

In general, Margot no longer has a radio or free walks. She does not go beyond her perches, I close the cage more than carefully. And all medicines and electronics from parrots, and other animals, should be removed immediately.

Generally all

I have a dog, a husky. When she was three months old, she chewed on lipstick for 800 R, two old books of 200 R, Pazolini shoes for 30,000 R. At four months, the dog ate a new wireless charger from Samsung for 15,000 R.When I was nine months old, I fell in love with gnawing linoleum in the corridor, and had to change it four times. Total total damage – approximately 20,000 R.

But now the dog and I have matured and began to take good care of things.

tried to watch the puppy 24/7

At a carefree puppy age, my Bull Terrier gnawed on a MacBook, several pairs of expensive shoes, a heating mattress, several frames for sockets, a couple of wires for charging various Apple equipment, legs of a wooden rack and table, a TV remote control, a threshold made of cork, a pair of T-shirts and a bunch of other little things – for us these are already little things – and also had a bite of two hoses of the dishwasher.Plumbers shrug their shoulders and do not understand how to fix them. Therefore, for now, we have been “kolkhoz”, that is, we patched up as best we could – with our own hands and with insulation. But we suspect that we will have to take a new dishwasher.

In a word, when the dog was small, it was necessary to constantly run after him, to make sure that he did not chew anything. But at his puppy age, we just had renovations, few wardrobes and doors, moving – and therefore it was not easy to keep him isolated from all things 24/7. And it was always enough to turn away just for a second or just sleep at night – and he was right there with his teeth.Two or three bites were enough to destroy the thing, and he only bit the hoses once. In general, we have a very sharp-toothed mini-bull. But we love him anyway.

By the way, with age, training and a bunch of toys, the problem gradually faded away. We were warned that bull terriers are sharks on legs, so mentally we were ready and not crazy – well, almost.

much has come true) • Slutsk • Newspaper “Infa-Kur’er”

Retrofuturism – a genre of fantasy, telling about ideas about the future from the past.About how science fiction writers in the days of the USSR imagined life through decades, Onliner already spoke . And also recalled how they saw the future in a popular science magazine for teenagers. However, there is also a more professional view. 63 years ago, the book “Report from the XXI century” was published, in which Soviet scientists, among other things, made predictions about future discoveries. Many “predictions” have come true. Onliner publishes excerpts from the book and compares them with real technologies that are in use today.

What is this book and who is its author

“Report from the XXI century” first appeared in circulation in 1958, after which it underwent several revisions. Onliner focused on the 1963 edition, which can be found in the public domain. Added to Wikipedia: the book has been translated into several languages ​​and published in 25 countries. “It contains interviews with Soviet scientists about how they see the development of science in the XXI century” – indicated in the description.

Authors of the book – M.Vasiliev and S. Gushchin . M. Vasiliev is Mikhail Vasilievich Khvastunov (Vasiliev is a pseudonym), Soviet journalist, publicist and writer, head of the science department and founder of the “Club of the Curious” column in the newspaper “Komsomolskaya Pravda” . In the material on the website of the publication, Khvastunov is called “the father of Soviet scientific journalism”, who published “more than 20 popular science books.” The cover of the book and one of its authors, Mikhail Vasilyevich Khvastunov.Photos from the website Onliner It is important to understand: in “Report from the XXI century” the authors in every possible way emphasize the superiority of Soviet science over Western science. Wikipedia adds: the book “promotes the socialist path of the country’s development.” Sources sometimes accuse Khvastunov of exaggeration and fantasy (especially in the book about Wolf Messing). However, the journalist’s relatives refute such opinions. So there is probably no need to talk about impartiality.

Nevertheless, many “foresight” of Soviet researchers of that period regarding possible future technologies in one form or another have been realized today.But not all. For example, the Moon did not become the seventh continent for mankind, and it is far from the development of Mars. It is also too early to declare “the creation of effective means of combating the formidable scourge of mankind” (cancer). Another example from the book is the creation of an artificial sun.

“The second half century of the life of radio”, or the emergence of mobile audio and video communications

The quote in the subtitle is the title of the chapter in which there is a conversation with Academician Vladimir Alexandrovich Kotelnikov .Not long before this, the principle of operation of portable communication receivers was described, through which, according to the authors of the book, communication between people would take place. Vladimir Aleksandrovich Kotelnikov was a Soviet and Russian scientist in the field of radio physics, radio engineering, electronics, computer science, radio astronomy and cryptography. One of the founders of Soviet secret radio and telephone communications. Academician of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Department of Physical Sciences), Vice President of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR in 1970-1988, twice Hero of Socialist Labor, 4th holder of the Order of Merit for the Fatherland, 1st degree “You reach out and take from the night table small, the size of a cigarette case, apparatus.This is a television transceiver for personal use, which all inhabitants of our planet, without exception, are equipped with. You set your friend’s callsign and press the call button. The screen of your device brightens, and a familiar face appears on it, drawn with an electron beam pencil with such clarity that you can count, despite the small size of the image, all the eyelashes and all the freckles, ”the text says.

And here is Kotelnikov’s quote with an answer to the question of whether such devices may appear in the future: “Yes, no doubt, there will be tiny TV sets that fit in a vest pocket, and gigantic ones with a screen of several square meters.A large screen size will not entail a large TV size. The TV will be like a picture: the whole apparatus will become flat. The screen thickness will be very thin. Reducing the size of the TV set and all radio devices in general will allow, in particular, the use of semiconductor equipment. ”

“Automatic stenographer-translator” or printer with speech recognition and conversion technologies

In the same chapter, the authors talk about “electronic calculating and other ‘thinking’ machines”, describe a device “standing on the left corner of a desk, taking up no more space than an ordinary typewriter,” and having only a few buttons in its asset.

“Pushing a button on a 21st century typewriter. Several sheets of thin and thick paper, covered with clear typographic signs, pop out from it. On some – the exact text of the past conversation. However, it is not entirely accurate: the machine straightened out incorrectly constructed phrases no worse than a skilled literary worker, supplemented them, achieving the accuracy of the expression of thought. And on other sheets – the translation of the same conversation into Latin and English, ”- is described in the chapter.

A device that copies a text already typed by someone was really invented, and moreover, earlier than the authors assumed, in the late 1950s.It is really difficult to imagine an office without a printer today. But the technologies of speech recognition and its automatic translation into text have really started to be used on a large scale relatively recently, but any smartphone can cope with this task today.

As well as the translator application installed on it. The program, however, can also convert speech to text and simultaneously translate it into another language. It is also known today about the “correction of incorrectly constructed phrases”: experts have more than once boasted of the achievements of neural networks, “writing” is comparable to living authors.

“The revolution of mental work” with the prototype of the Internet and memory storages

A conversation about “machines that mechanize the mental work of people” in the book is conducted with Academician Sergei Alekseevich Lebedev , who headed the Institute of Precise Mechanics and Computer Engineering of the USSR Academy of Sciences. The academician assumed that the number of operations per second in electronic computers would grow and that this would speed up and simplify the work of specialists in various fields – from meteorological forecasts to mathematical calculations.Sergei Alekseevich Lebedev, one of the founders of Soviet computer technology, director of ITMiVT, Hero of Socialist Labor, winner of the Lenin Prize and the USSR State Prize, even Lebedev, announced the emergence of “library translations”. According to the scientist, the technology will allow “the transmission of any literary, historical, scientific information on individual orders using television devices.”

“You don’t need to have your own radio station to listen to the radio. It is enough to start a simple loudspeaker.Hundreds, thousands of loudspeakers are connected by wires to a radio broadcasting unit that transmits. The library and translation network works like such a node, ”the specialist said. The closest modern analogue, albeit not without reservations, is the Internet.

Lebedev is optimistic – and, as it turned out later, truthfully – describes data warehouses. “A person will be able not to burden his memory with a mass of unnecessary technical information. He will be helped by the “memory” of the so-called information electronic machines.At the first request, the machine will find the required cell and set in motion a tape-recorder on which not only sound, but also an image is recorded, ”the dialogue says.

Fortunately, the inventors managed to get rid of tapes much earlier than in the 21st century. But the fact that computer storages will be able to contain arrays of data with remote access to them (if you simplify a little, you can find analogies with cloud storages), in the middle of the last century, one could only dream of.

“Model 2007” or electric car with autopilot

Soviet designer Yuri Aronovich Dolmatovsky dreamed that by 2007 (based on the title of the chapter in the book) mankind would switch to cars with an autopilot. Yuri Aronovich Dolmatovsky – Soviet designer of automotive equipment, journalist, author of popular books; candidate of technical sciences, member of the Union of Journalists of the USSR “We almost did not feel the beginning of movement and takeoff: they were so smooth. And a minute later, our car, uncontrolled by anyone, was flying along the gray tape of the highway at a speed of about 250 kilometers per hour, ”the chapter says.- Of course, the creation of such a car was inextricably linked with the creation of roads for it. The radar system continuously comes into contact with highway road signs. Photocells monitor traffic signals. Moreover, road signs, traffic lights, and the highway itself are designed for the movement of just such cars. ”

And the authors also add that we are talking about an electric car. “Electric cables are laid under the highway, which carry high-frequency currents. The energy of the electromagnetic field that is created around this cable is captured by a special antenna device located under the bottom of the car.In essence, the cable under the highway can be called the antenna of the transmitter, and the engine of the car – the radio receiver, ”the conclusion says.

With the speed of movement, as well as the method of transmission of electricity, the authors of the book slightly missed, but with electric cars with their own batteries and an autopilot just 14 years later from the year assumed by Soviet engineers, they did not.
