2. Back To The Future II (Hoverboards In 2015)

More than anything else, this is what really makes us upset about Back to the Future II. The hoverboard, at least the type we see in the film, still does not exist. Several people have made their own version of one, yet most of them tend to be really large and ultimately aren’t as impressive.

The movie depicts kids and eventually Marty riding the hoverboard like a skateboard. While “Future Biff” also has a hoverboard, he also has some nice booster rockets on his. Look science, we’re not asking for what Biff has, just give us that 80s-style hoverboard sometime soon!

1. Time Travel (Multiple Science Fiction Movies, TV Shows, & Books)

Time Travel has been used in tons of science fiction media. We mentioned a lot of them on this list like The Terminator and Back to the Future. Yet others also exist that we did not cover such as Dr. Who, Interstellar, The Time Traveler’s Wife, Star Trek IV, The Butterfly Effect, Planet of the Apes, and Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.

Yet the worst part about all of this is that no matter what science fiction connection we see with this, time-traveling is not possible yet. It angers us that it isn’t, mostly because there is so much we’d want to change or see. Plus, science fiction media tends to get a lot wrong about the future. We hope to see it eventually!
