Hoverboard - Back to The Future 2
Ah, the trusty hoverboard. Now there was a gadget that I honestly thought may have seen the light of day. A little bit of downward propulsion here, a little 80's neon paintwork there, a gang of cyber punks to out run... sorted.
Last week’s Back to The Future hoax (in which evil internet fibbers said that we’d actually reached the date in the “future” that Marty McFly heads to) got me thinking. To be precise, it got me thinking “WHERE THE HELL IS MY MOTHER F***ING HOVERBOARD?”
You see, sci-fi cinema has a tendency to promise us the world, but none of the crazy ideas ever seem to come to fruition. Perfect example being flying cars; we’ve had them in comics and films for decades now, and you’re telling me we can send people to the moon, but cant get a car to fly? Pshshhhh!
So here’s my rundown on the best sci-fi gadgets that really do need to exist in the real world.
Admittedly, nearly all of the concepts and ideas in the films lead to some sort of disaster or other. But if the technology were in the hands of someone with the right intentions, someone who lacked hubris, who would use the gizmos for good and not personal gain, someone like… me…
Then…then…THEN I COULD TAKE OVER THE WORLD! MWHAHAHAH!
