Technology Recap for Back to the Future

October 21, 2015 is the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in Back to the Future II (1989). Interestingly the movie predicted some tech that does exist today such as hands-free games (e.g. Kinect), flatscreen TVs, and biometric scanners. However we fell short of having flying cars, self-drying jackets and self-lacing shoes. Oh, don’t forget the most anticipated one, hoverboards! Recently we did hear about a creative Texan who had a good attempt using leaf blowers, you can read it here if you missed the article.

  1. I remember watching Back to The Future when I was younger and I always kept this date (n.r 21 October 2015) in my head, I was excited to rewatch the movie on that day and see how many things they got correct. I wish we had real hoverboards at least! 🙁
