In 1985 many of us were privileged to start watching the first movie of the trilogy of back to the future.

Many of us could not wait to see part 2, part 3 and still look forward to part 4. But our children for example are not very interested in it, because they already live in the future.

This amazing movie brought to us, all technology lovers predictions about what would happen 30 years later.

Can you remember that?

1- THE DEATH OF LASERDISCS (LD’S) AND COMPACTDISC

If you’re under 25, you should not even remember the LaserDiscs, those big donuts similar to LP’s, but with digital sound technology. The movie completely retired then in 2015 both the LD’s and the CD’s.

2-Google Glass.

At a family dinner at the home of Marty McFly and Jeniffer, their teenage kids are wearing a kind of tech eyewear, very similar to Google Glass.

At that time we wouldn’t even dream about this kind of gadget but today is something normal between us.

3- Payment by mobile phones

A mobile credit card reader? This idea Jack Dorsey, one of the founders of Twitter, had to transform the mobile device into a practical credit card machine, through an application called Square.

4- Computers in Everywhere

As a big Big Brother, the plot is right that in our near future computers will be everywhere.

5- Slim Digital Camera

Slim digital cameras with advanced technology? This was not a special thing for 2015. Maybe if they had thought about this technology on smartphones could be a big hit.

6- Big TV and Multiple channels at the same time

Watching howm many channels you like at the same time in a slim tv?

The first Rear-projection Television or RPTV was launched in 2005 and reached 100 inchs, not even close to be a slim tv and the 1985 film shows the future with, flat-panel monitors, similar what we can see today, and we can see how many channels we want at the same time completely different from that time that if a channel works fine we already be happy.

We could talk about many other things, such portable computers and tablets, video games Controlled by physical movement, 3D cinema among countless other things.

Although our children may already live in this future, we can say that the human brain has not yet reached 3% of its capacity, so we can be sure that the future has just begun.
