DailyDirt: Back To The Future... In 2015

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The movie Back To The Future II takes place in 2015... so now that we've already arrived in 'the future' -- how have we done? We don't have flying cars (DeLorean-styled or otherwise) unless you count one-off hobbyist replicas that just kinda hover a bit. We could be on the cusp of getting hoverboards that actually work (but not on water, nor on any other surfaces besides a non-ferrous metal). Fax machines are still around, but not quite as popular as Back To The Future might make them look. If you liked this classic 80s movie, check out a few of these links. After you've finished checking out those links, take a look at our Daily Deals for cool gadgets and other awesome stuff.
