Welcome to the Future

It’s finally here!!

the-future

In 1989, goofy sci fi movie Back to the Future 2 saw hapless protagonists travel to the distant faraway time of… 2015! Regrettably hoverboards, Mr Fusion machines, and holographic cinemas haven’t happened yet. Though a few things did actually come true, like tablet computers, wearable tech, and video phone calls. Maybe that movie was pretty insightful after all. Don’t forget, in 1989 most people didn’t know what the internet was. Right now, there’s a good chance you’re reading this on a touchscreen pocket-sized computer. The world has… changed somewhat.

In the meantime, here’s a little message (found on Tumblr) from Doc Brown for all of you kids at home.

Happy Back to the Future Day!

Well ok, there is a kind of hoverboard actually being worked on. But You’re not going to see one on the street anytime soon.
