Back to the future II predictions for 2015

We are finally in 2015, and we finally know if the film “Back to the future 2", where Martin McFly travelled 30 years forward (although the film was released in 1989, it was set in 1985), was right about how 2015 would be or not. And you will be surprised to know that they got a lot right...

NIKE SNEAKERS

The big Nike sneakers, perfect for jumping onto a hover board may seem a bit extravagant. However, Nike didn’t want to loose the opportunity the film gave them and has designed a pair of sneakers like those worn by Martin.They’ll be released in october this year

VIDEO CALLS

The Robert Zemekis film also presented a future where phone calls were out of date and people would communicate by video calls and fax. Nowadays we have a lot of services like Skype or Viber, very much used by today’s crazy globalization and travels around the world. On the other side, Fax is becoming more and more obsolete, and fax definitely doesn’t fire us...

INTELLIGENT GLASSES

Another tool that they got right are the glasses Martin’s daughter was using to answer the phone. Google glasses were a first step, and Microsoft HoloLens look so similar too.

DEHYDRATED FOOD

A lot of people were impressed by how a little pizza could get enormous in just a few seconds. Even though we still don’t find dehydrated pizza on supermarket shelves, there is a big range of other dehydrated food available today.

FLYING CARS

Alright. This is so futuristic. There are also some prototypes, like Aeromobil 2.5, but seeing flying cars on the streets is still far away in time.

AUTOMATIC DOG WALKERS

Another gadget that doesn’t exist is devices that walk the dogs alone. Not a bad idea though, it would save dogs from suffering till they get walked, and would give to the owners some extra time to sleep in the morning.

HOVER BOARDS

TThe coolest skateboard we can imagine, hover boards are probably the top tool that we saw in Back to the Future II. Nowadays it still looks like something from the future, but you may be surprised knowing that there are some companies with very advanced prototypes today.
