I’m a huge fan of sci-fi movies, and this year is looking great so far. For me it all started with”Back to the Future.” I’d wonder, “what’s the world going to be like when you don’t need roads?” That question had my mind running, and studying the theories of the near and distant future has been one of my greatest passions in life. A good sci-fi movie can change the world, and can push forward the fields of science and technology in unimaginable ways. It turns out the present is a lot different than “Back to the Future 2” predicted, but some inventions have been created because of the popularity of the movie. There are inventions the movie couldn’t have predicted, like smart phones. A lot of the inventions may come to fruition someday though. Holograms aren’t quite here yet, and when we discover how to create a room temperature superconductor we’ll have the beloved hover boards from the movie (but super conductors will be capable of far more than that). I’m hearing rumblings about legitimate flying cars being created by Uber and other companies that are much closer than you’d believe. I could talk for hours about what this movie has done to the minds of scientists and technologists, of what they strive to create because of it, so I’ll force myself to stop here.
One of them could inspire you.
