October 21, 2015 – the date visited by Marty McFly 26 years ago in “Back to the Future: Part II” — is upon us and although many of the cult classic's predictions did not come true, some did.

Video calls and 3D films have been around for a while and though it is rare to see a drone walking a dog, drones themselves can be seen hovering about at any given moment. And although flying cars and hoverboards are not yet used by the masses they do technically exist.
