You guys, it’s happened. We are in back to the future… Today marks the historical day Marty McFly and Doc Brown jumped in their Delorean and blasted their way into October 21, 2015. What did they see? A world of fantastical technological advancements. Back to the Future Part II had some hilarious aspirations for technology, including their equally laughable faith in the life of the fax machine.
October has turned into a month of uplifting nostalgia. Thanks to the sweet emotional tugging the trilogy still wields over our hearts. For many of us, it represents childhood, watching the films with our family and sharing popcorn while dreaming of time travel… and hoping the future would be that cool. Now that it’s finally here, it’s safe to say we all have mixed feelings about whether or not our 2015 is as far out as the 2015 Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd navigated through.
For one thing, the teenagers aren’t wearing inside-out pants and throwback outfits are actually considered in style. The space clothing and bright colors of the film, a signature look of the 80’s and early 90’s, are nowhere near what we don on an everyday basis; and holograms aren’t looming at every corner of the street; although, there have been some spotted at Miami International Airport which made us cross our fingers this was a sign of more futuristic things to come.
There are, however, a few key inventions from Back To The Future Part 2 that we sure WISH did exist today. Take a trip to an alternate universe with us and enjoy the 2015 that could have been.
