As most of us know today, October 21, 2015, is the day that Marty McFly travels to the future in the famous movie, Back to the Future II. Besides the whole time travel part, the movie got a lot right about what the future would hold technology wise.
In the movie, when they first arrive in the future Doc looks at his watch and is able to tell when it will stop raining. Now although it is not completely the same, one similar modern technology is the Apple Watch. Another innovation in the movie and in today’s life is video conferencing. In the movie Marty talks to his former high school classmates, today Skype the primary videoconferencing site has made 8.5 billion dollars in one year alone.
Some other technology in the movie that we have today include mobile payments, virtual reality, and drones. At the time the movie was made, I’m sure people didn’t expect these things to ever exist and now they do. That is insane in my opinion. Not to mention that the movie predicts the Cubs winning the pennant, and today the were competing for the exact title.
