The popular 80’s movie Back To The Future II depicted a very different – yet similar – future of the year 2015. In the movie, Marty McFly and Doc Brown went to the future and emerged on 21st October 2015 – just a couple of days ago.
Imagine if they came to OUR 2015 instead:
Things they got ALMOST right: the Cubs winning the World Series (they ended up in the final).
The famous Hoverboard scene:
Things they got right or almost: Compost fuel (biogas) exists, though it’s not too popular ; flying cars like the Terrafugia but nobody uses them; the Hoverboard (it’s called a hoverboard but has two wheels and is more like a segway); Tablets; Wearable EyeGlass devices (think Google Glass); Self-tying shoes (Nike actually invented them); 3d Movies (not Jaws 19 but there are so many sequels) ; Holograms (the Michael Jackson hologram exists); Flat-Screen tv’s; Skype; Automated waiters (just think of iPlace in Malta).
There’s an amazing Parody version of a trailer of an imagined new BTTF movie:
Michael J Fox trying on the self-lacing shoes FOR REAL:
Toyota did a video reuniting the two stars Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd.
