At Last! The Future Tech of Our Dreams Is Now A Reality

Who watched Back to the Future and dreamed of owning a hover board? Few people watched ‘The Matrix’ and didn’t want to try out touch technology? Everything back then seemed like a far-fetched dream, but so much of what seemed impossible has become reality.

Finally, it seems that many of the gadgets and technology that we saw in movies and TV shows in our childhoods, things that seemed really futuristic at the time, have become (or are becoming) a reality.

Let’s now talk a little more about Marty’s famous hover board, followed by a few other things:


The Back to The Future Hover Board

This idea seemed really cool at the time but now that it’s totally possible, do we really want it? Many have gone off the idea of recreating McFly’s hovering skills, and the hefty price tag of $10,000 to get one is probably a big part of the reason why.

And having read some info over on different websites about personal injury claims when a gadget like this is first released, it’s no surprise that issues with safety is yet another reason why the hover board hasn’t really taken off (pun intended!).

If you wanted a shorter experience, it is possible to try out a ride on one of these boards but it will set you back about $100 for 5 minutes so again, you would want to be in the money for this to become a regular pastime.


Self Lacing Nikes, also from Back to the Future

Another favourite from the Back to the Future series was the self-lacing Nike trainers and, excitingly enough, these will be available to buy from November the 28th. Going under the name HyperAdapt 1.0 sneakers, these are sure to be a massive hit, and just in time for the Christmas market too.

I’m guessing that these won’t attract nearly as many personal injury claims but for everything you need to know about no win no fee personal injury claims, Solicitors Guru can help you out.


The PlayStation VR

VR devices have been tried out a few times with big success and, as of late, the Oculus Rift and HTC’s Vive have demonstrated what is possible from a head mounted virtual reality device.

And when Sony launch the PSVR in mid October, the potential audience is set to expand exponentially. This technology has really moved along, and it is now very easy to forget your surroundings and become totally immersed in the scene presented in front of you.

The display unit could become whatever you wanted it to be, somewhat like the Holodeck in Star Trek, especially when using the move controllers to interact with the virtual environment that surrounds you. And truly enclosed you are, as the display allows you to look around 360 degrees in virtual space. It really has to be seen to be believed.

These are just a few examples of the gadgets and technology from past movies that are now becoming a reality. And at the pace that technology moves, it will be really interesting to see what next becomes a reality. Maybe we will get a Star Gate or a teleporter, just like in the movies!
