HAPPY “BTTF” DAY!

 

Between 1985 – 1990, we experienced the epic saga that is Back to the Future!

 

In the film, Marty McFly travels 30 years into the future to experience how it would be like, to 21st October 2015…

which is TODAY!

 

Some fans of the film would feel slightly disappointed that we don’t have everything that the movie predicted we’d be enjoying today, like self-buckling shoes, food hydrators, automatic dog-walkers, flying cars, etc.

But let’s take a look at the 8 things we DO have that are similar to BTTF’s predictions!

How unbelievable is this??? It’s crazy enough that we now have hoverboards, but police chasing bad guys on this mind-blowing invention? Too cool, for school!

In the movie we see the glasses known as “Wearables”, today we have ourselves Google Glasses which in theory seems like an exact replica to those in the Back to the Future film.

 

  1. Oculus Rift

First seen in 2012 at the jet ski World Championship in China, FlyBoard has since been making waves (literally) all over the world!

We can now use biometrics to scan fingerprints to unlock our phones, laptops, doors, etc. like its pffft, just yesterday!

Ever since they brought Tupac back to life at Coachella 2012, holograms have been making their way to concerts! Look out for one near you.
