'The Future' officially starts here, according to Back to the Future II - as today marks the date to which Marty McFly and the Doc travel in the sci-fi cult classic.

 

  • In the past how did you think the future would look like around the year 2015? 
  • Did you ever expect it to look like it is like to-day?
  • What did Back to the future get wrong?
  • What did the film get right about the future?

This is making big news today on the BBC..... They spoke to one of the writers via a video call...

They did predict that.

Mind you they envisaged flying cars and no roads...

The one I'm missing the most is this one:

 

"In the film, Marty’s mother, Lorraine, fixes supper for six by slipping a coaster-sized pizza into a Black and Decker rehydrator for a couple of seconds."

I think 6 ft off the ground is just the beginning. Imagine if a big tech company invests in the project, where this will be in  15 - 20 years. No more waiting 3 hours for a 2 hour flight! Yay!
