This is what 'Back to the Future II' got right, wrong about 2015

Washington: Its 2015, the year of the glorious high-tech future predicted in the 1989 film 'Back to the Future: Part II.'

Futurist Michael Rogers told Newsweek that the movie did get a few things right like the three definite hits: biometrics, large screen home displays, video telephone calls, the CNN reported.

Futurist Ross Dawson said that flying cars do exist today for example AeroMobil but not in the way they're portrayed in the film.

They had video glasses in the movie and it's interesting that that is now coming into play with Google Glass and a number of other competitors, he further added.

Glen Hiemstra further stated that no doubt the hoverboard was wrong but there's a hoverboard company now, which uses magnetic repulsion and they're called Hendo Hoverboards.

They have to be on a certain kind of metal surface and the company has big dreams of having a big impact in the warehousing and factory business, where people could move things around on big hoverboards, he further added.
