BACK TO THE FUTURE TECH TRENDS
For all the innovations that the future may hold, the one constant is the need for power. After all, the energy that fuels those gadgets must come from somewhere.
October 21st, 2015. If you watched the Back to the Future movies in the 80s, you’ll probably remember that 2015 is the year in the future that Marty McFly and Doc Brown time-travelled to – a future that saw many innovations and technological advances. Now that we’ve actually hit the year 2015, the obvious question that comes up is: how many of these movie predictions actually came true?
Ok, so technically this first appears in Back to the Future (the original movie), but in Doc Brown’s redesigned Delorean in Back to the Future II, the time machine’s flux capacitor was powered by “Mr Fusion” - a home energy reactor that allowed Doc to convert trash into power by way of a controlled nuclear fusion reaction. The premise being that this offered the people of 2015 a solution to their energy problems, as plutonium was scarce and garbage was clearly readily available. Out of gas? Just empty your trash into Mr Fusion and you’re good to go.
