You don’t have to be Marty McFly or Doc Brown to know that October 21, 2015 represents a major milestone for both tech enthusiasts and film buffs. For 25 years, fans of the Back to the Future movies have been waiting to travel to this moment in time – the same moment that McFly traveled to via DeLorean to save his future children.

While real-life 2015 didn’t pan out exactly as Back to the Future II depicted, many of the technologies in Marty McFly’s future time-travels have indeed become a reality.
