Invented first by Hendo in 2014, and then Lexus this year, it’s not exactly Marty McFly’s, but hopefully soon it will be!
2. Nike Powerlaces
In Back To The Future II, Marty McFly had self-lacing Nikes. Well, in 2011, Nike released 1500 pairs of limited edition Nike Air Mags, which replicate the ‘80s high-tops.
3. Phone Glasses
Thanks Google Glass, this certainly was a reality, but a bit of a flop. After all, no one Google Glass makes you look like a glasshole.
4. Fingerprint recognition
In the movie it was just doors that unlock with fingerprint recognition, which we have, but now we also have fingerprint scanners on basically any new smartphone.
That’s right, it was predicated here first. Obviously, Apple wasn’t the first to invent them, but Apple did make they go viral.
6. 3D and Hologram Movies
When McFly walks by a movie theatre called Holomax playing Jaws 19, a shark hologram leaps out at him. Although we aren’t there just yet, we are well on our way with 3D movies, and perhaps hologram cinemas eventually - we can view holograms on Microsoft’s HoloLens or any other virtual reality headset. Also, we do seem to have an obsession with sequels, just see Fast and Furious 7.
7. Retractable Indoor Garden
Not only are these become incredibly popular in sustainable-minded communities, but now we are even using these in outerspace!
8. Hands-free gaming
In one restaurant, kids are playing hands-free games and say playing with your hands is a “baby’s toy”. Thanks for Xbox Kinect, we know have games that operate via gestures and spoken commands.
9. Flying cars
They aren't approved for the road or the skies just yet, but several companies have had successful flights. Comapnies like Terrafugia and AeroMobil have been operating for several years and are close to making this a reality.
Just after landing in the future in the pouring rain, Doc looks at his watch and says “wait five more seconds”, and the rain stops. Well, thanks The Dark Sky Company in as early as 2012, this accurate smartwatch was a real thing. Now it’s been popularized by Apple.
