A relative of mine had a big stack of these magazines and I used to love reading them when I was little. :) Although what I remember most is that the last page always had some crazy Rube Goldberg-like device designed to complete common everyday tasks. I can't even remember any specifics any-more. I'm fairly sure there was one about a device that would shoot a rabbit when someone popped a champagne cork, though.

Illustrations from Soviet sci-fi novels (Strugatski Brothers!) are also an awesome source of retro sci-fi imagery; to this day I wish the future would look like them. :P
