  1. Michael says:

    I want the self tying Nikes but they’re gonna be so expensive cause I know someone with the non-self tying version from a few years ago and they cost him a couple hundred.

  2. Erik says:

    Truthfully, it’s Life imitating Art.

  3. Gecko says:

    Didn’t Elon Musk develop a prototype robot to plug in and re-charge his Tesla Motors vehicles recently?

  4. Fernando Maciel says:

    Ah, no flying cars! That was my major expectation as a kid! 

  5. Henrik says:

    Jessica, thank you so much for saying “density.” It makes me very happy. What can I say, I’m easily pleased. 

  6. Joy says:

  7. Michael Sacal says:

    “Back to the Future wouldn’t have lied to us…right?”

    Right, but Marty did change history at the end of III, so that would have caused the future to be different.
    For instance, what if the guy who created flying cars was the owner of the Rolls Royce Marty crashed into and the only reason he created them in the first place was to avoid similar accidents in the future?
    No crash, no flying cars, and no 15 Jaws movies, heh

  10. Poop says:

    I don’t think I want to live in a world without Poop water. Come on 2015, Poop water should be pouring out of every fosset!

  11. There is a 7th prediction now. CNN announced an agreement with the FAA that allows the use of drones for reporting purposes. That is like the USA Today drone outside the courthouse in the movie.

  12. Joe says:
