The minds behind your favorite science fiction movies and television shows often require the same kind of creativity that the people who create technology do-- And as we're all inspired by the same cultural shifts, it's no surprise that futuristic devices that capture our imagination in fiction often find a way to worm their way into our real lives in some form. All that said, when technology finally comes around to creating these fantastic toys and tools, they end up looking a little different than they're depicted in the work that inspired them. Video phones exist in much the same way that they do in Back to the Future Part II, but they're not displayed on giant televisions... Or even really used that much at all? Seriously, just a send a text message, we don't need to look up your nose as you hold your iPhone less than a foot from your face. We're still waiting for those flying cars, though.
