It's Back to the Future day, so what did the movie get right and wrong about 2015?

Today is October 21st, 2015.  That's the date in the "future" that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travel to in "Back to the Future 2".  So obviously, everybody wants to know if that future matches up to the real deal.

The things the movie got right include:

  • Big screen TVs
  • Video conferencing
  • News drones
  • Hands-free video games
  • Video glasses.

Things we have NOT seen yet include:

  • Flying cars
  • Hoverboards
  • "Jaws 19"
  • Shoes with self-tying laces. (Although, this one might actually come true today.  Nike kind of teased it yesterday.)

As for the Cubs winning the World Series, that is still to be determined.  But the fact that they predicted it nearly 30 years ago and it's a real possibility is a little eerie.  Even if it is a very remote possibility.  As it stands now, the Mets are up in the series 3-0 and only need one more win to shut the Cubs out of the running.
