BACK TO THE FUTURE, TODAY
When did Marty and Doc arrive in the future? Today, October 21, 2015.
So how accurate was the future described in the classic 1989 Back to the Future II?
Wearable tech is plentiful in the movie, and true to the movie’s prediction, we now have wearable devices such Google Glass and Apple’s Watch, among other wearable products, all aimed at making us feel even more connected.
In the movie, future Marty has a video conversation with his bosses via the TV. We now have services like Skype, Google Hangouts and FaceTime, most of which can be accessed on TV’s or Smartphones. Another correct prediction by the movie.
We already have biometric technology on our Smartphones and we can expect more of it. This technology will soon also be more widely available on door locks as well.
Remember the 3d hologram in Back to the Future II, promoting the 19th installment of the Jaws franchise? Our technology is on par with such feats, as was showcased in Tupac’s resurrection at Coachella in 2012.
They are everywhere! They don’t yet walk dogs, like they do in the movie, but they are already involved in deliveries of small parcels, surveillance and media, and may soon be involved in traffic control and sport goal-line technology.
The movie depicted flying cars, and although this is yet to be a reality for an average consumer, it may not be as far as you think.
