Slide 1

The Back to the Future trilogy taught us about what the past and what the future was like!

Slide 2

Marty McFly and Emmett Brown flew in a time machine DeLorean and traveled in time!

Slide 3

So, in Back in the Future Part II, the duo went to the future on October 21, 2015.

Slide 4

What did the movie makers get right, and what did they get wrong? This is the focus in this presentation!

Slide 5

Sleep inducing generator. No where near close, many could use something like this today!

Slide 6

When they land in the future, the rain was timed to stop. As if weather was fully predictable, we are nowhere close to that!

Slide 7

The next thing, peelable faces! Sorry Doc, we have a long way to go before that!

Slide 8

The first thing the movie makers got right, portable picture/video viewers! We call those smartphones today!

Slide 9

The next thing was those Nike self-lacing shoes. We might not have them now, but Nike says they are working on them!

Slide 10

And sorry, the justice system does not work fast, and we still have lawyers!

Slide 11

And then we see Marty go into the downtown Hill Valley area, and you see quite a few interesting things! For example, Texaco services flying cars, don’t have that!

Slide 12

And the Holomax Jaws 19 shark, Jaws ended a long time ago!

Slide 13

Hologram TV’s, don’t have those either!

Slide 14

The Antique shop, we still use things like this today!

Slide 15

TV waiters where they use celebrities. For one, you could not do this in today’s world without a lawsuit. And two, we don’t have them!

Slide 16

And there’s Pepsi Perfect, we don’t have that. And yes, Pepsi is making souvenir Pepsi Perfect bottles!

Slide 17

Self-raising bats, don’t have them!

Slide 18

Hoverboards, they were real in the movie, but they are not real in today’s world! One thing the movie got wrong, was the acceptance today of boys playing girls toys, and girls playing boys toys.

Slide 19

Self drying and self-fitting clothes, don’t have those!

Slide 20

Cubs winning the World Series, they had a chance but failed, upsetting many BTTF fans!

Slide 21

Handheld computers, they got that one right!

Slide 22

Suspended animation kennels for pets, no where close to that! Many pet owners would have a fit!

Slide 23

Hey drones, we have those now!

Slide 24

Variable message signs, we have those as well!

Slide 25

Thumbprint readers to get inside, you could say we have those now!

Slide 26

Self-changing hat name changers, nope!

Slide 27

Scene Screen, not invented in our world!

Slide 28

An upside down wheelchair. I mean, you can’t be comfortable in that!

Slide 29

Display glasses, we have those now!

Slide 30

Payable cash registers, you could say we have those now, but you don’t use a thumbprint to pay.

Slide 31

Voice activated TV’s, don’t have those yet!

Slide 32

Robot dog walkers, not even close!

Slide 33

Dehydrated Pizza Hut pizza and a food hydrator, no and no!

Slide 36

Master Cook, nope!

Slide 37

Phone glasses, eww! Thankfully we have a handheld smartphone instead!

Slide 38

Video chat. Yes, we have that today! Telling everyone about your life in public, we have that too!

Slide 39

Smart briefcase with a card reader, nope!

Slide 40

Fax machine printers. We kind of have those, but the machines are a lot bigger!

Slide 41

And let’s not forget about the trash fusion compactor, not invented yet!

Slide 42

Don’t trust movie makers about what the future will be like, as you can see, most things were made up! In Closing
