Back to the future

Guess most of us have seen the film Back to the Future? In the second part of the trilogy, Marty McFly and Doc Emmet Brown arrive in the future on October 21st, 2015. And that's today.


Worldwide fans of the films are celebrating this fact. And it's nice to see what happened to the predictions made in this film...

Doc's DeLorean racecar rides on beer and a few bits of leftover food. This hasn't happened yet, but we do  already use bio-fuel.

When they arrive in 2015, it's raining very hard. Doc looks at his watch and predicts it will stop in 4 seconds. In reality we have iWatches and when you have an app, you can pretty accurately predict the weather.

Also on arrival, Doc peels off his old skin. Now Botox and plastic surgery are pretty common.

In 1989, you took pictures with an old-fashioned camera, and the roll of film needed to be processed. Nowadays we have camera's on our smartphones or extra-light digital camera's.

When Griff and his gang are arrested, a sort of drone falls out of the sky to take pictures for USA Today. Nowadays we see drones anywhere.

There are many more things that the film predicted correctly. If you know any more, feel free to comment!
