Today is a special day. Today is the October 21, 2015.
Are you asking why is this a special date? Great Scott!!! Haven’t you checked yours social media today?!? Today is the day that Marty McFly and the scientist Emmet L. Brown (also known as “Doc”), the main characters of Back to the Future, visited in the 1985.
The 2015 expected 30 years ago by Rober Zemeckis and Bob Gale, the movie’s authors, is pretty different than the real one. As noticed by the guy who made this video:
However, the trilogy predicted few inventions that already exist, as highlighted by NowThis Entertainment.
7 inventions predicted by Back to the Future:
– The Flying Skateboards. I know, you’ve never seen one of those, but a hoverboard has been launched on Kickstarter, with a crowdfunding campaign.
– 3D Movies (well… we still need dedicated glasses)
– The Black&Decker Hydrator.
Black&Decker never made a machine that hydrates and presumably reheates dehydrated foods in a similar way to a microwave. But the entrepeneurs Ayelet Carasso e Doron Marco made something similar with the Genie machine.
– Power Laces NIKE shoes.

– The videochat.
– Smartglasses (Back to the Future predicted a combination of Google Glasses and Oculus).
– The new Pepsi bottle:
Do you think that are strange inventions? Well: “I guess you guys aren’t ready for that yet… but your kids are gonna love it.”
Moreover, Back to the Future predicted the Marty McFly and Doc’s back to the future: the main characters of the trilogy actually reached the October 21, 2015. Don’t you believe in it? So you must watch that Jimmy Kimmel Live episode:
During the #BackToTheFutureDay the actor Michael J. Fox invited the Back to the Future fans to mind about the Parkinson’s disease. Fox started displaying symptoms of early-onset Parkinson’s disease in 1991, and in 2000 he created The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The Power Laces shoes had been actually made by NIKE, which will sale it by an auction and will offer the earnings to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
