Today is officially the day Marty McFly arrives in our time. We know he will be surprised that it is way different to the 2015 he first visited in Back to the Future 2. Here a few of the things that are different from the 2015 Marty and Doc visited in the movies.
Hoverboards and Flying Cars
These two are, unfortunately, still not available. Flying cars are still only found in fiction and for hoverboards, no real or mainstream versions have ever been released. Though engineers have tried to create hoverboards using magnets, and a secondary magnetic field, none have been able to create a hoverboard that can glide on any surface.
On 2018 a flying car concept called T-FX may go on sale, but it is still very far from the flying cars shown on the movie.
Self Tying Laces
Last year, inventors in St Hubert, Canada made this a reality with a product they called Powerlace.
Their ‘Powerlace auto-lacing system’ lets wearers tie their laces without using their hands when their weight automatically engages the system’s mechanism.
Smart Kitchen Appliances
Though far from the drones, robots, and devices like the hydrator found in the movie, today’s kitchens are smarter and actually more advanced with capabilities of connecting to the internet, ordering food when it runs out and even follows voice commands.
In the film, several shots show drones doing jobs for the police as well as doing menial tasks such as walking a dog. Today, drones are available commercially for a variety of tasks from photography and espionage to doing deliveries.
Back to the futures was not able to predict how advanced our mobile phones can become, but it was able to give us a peek at how wearables are a thing for the future. Today. many companies are investing in wearable technology like the Apple Iwatch, Google Glass and Oculus VR.
Today, this is commonplace, with our mobile phones even capable of allowing us to talk with anybody anywhere. Skype, Facetime and even Facebook Messenger now allow us to talk to our friends and family wherever we are.
