5 Predictions from Old Sci-Fi Movies About the 21st Century That Actually Came True

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, transportation

Science and technology have advanced incredibly in the 21st Century. It’s easier now than ever to travel to or talk to people who live halfway across the world, and we now are more connected to advanced technology than anyone could have thought possible. Science fiction, in the 20th and 21st Centuries, has strived to anticipate just how far this technological advancement would go, and what the consequences of that would be.

Of course, a lot of old sci-fi movies included tropes about the 21st Century that proved to be wrong. Indeed, it was probably too optimistic, in hindsight, to assume we would get flying cars before the end of the 90s or that the 2000s would have lifelike androids running around. Despite these incorrect predictions, though, there are some movies that were eerily accurate, or even predicted we would have technology later than we eventually got access to. In some cases, sci-fi has even been the inspiration for invention, with people wanting to emulate what they saw on television. These are some predictions, made by older sci-fi movies, that turned out to be on the money.
