So what did the 80s film get right about 2015
Although no internet was ever predicted we saw Doc looking at a handheld device similar to that of the iPhone to gain information about things he can see
We see them pay with thumbprint recognition similar to that of the iPhone 6
Fingerprint recognition - we see fingerprints being used instead of keys to open doors
Wearable Technology - we saw Marty's future children wearing headsets which made and received calls and allowed them to watch TV similar to Google Glass that already exists
Video Calls were made in Back to the Future 2 - we now have Skype and FaceTime
What did the film get wrong about 2015
We don't have Flying Cars and Hoverboards
We don't yet have dog-walking robots
We are we still tying our shoe laces
Dehydrated Food - we cannot yet make a large pizzas out of a tiny pocket sized dehydrated ones
Whilst it was never intended to be a serious film they did get some things right in terms of what has been developed
Fans all over the world are celebrating Back to the Future day – How do you plan to celebrate?
