Of course I'm talking about one of the greatest iconic 80's trilogies, Back to Future.
Seeing part two on a recent stay in hospital, the part when Marty travels to 2015 made me think that we are only three years away from the actual
time. This got me thinking.
Flying cars, power laces and paying $50 for a Pepsi. As a kid growing up, flying cars? Yes, quite possible. Robots as mainstream companions? Hell
yeah. I didn't really envision the future as seen in Back to the Future II, but I really thought we would have these things, along with having space
travel as a norm the way we jet across the world today. I imagined colonies on Mars, and being a kid of the 80s, nuclear warfare as a norm.
So, as a kid, what did you envision when looking at the future? What did you see us having in society that has not yet come to pass?
