Predicting the future is difficult. Do it right and riches are yours. Do it wrong and your riches are gone. Mary Meisenzahi found a few predictions from the movie Blade Runner that didn’t make it to 2019.
The original “Blade Runner” movie came out in 1982, and takes place in November 2019. The film is hailed as a classic, and had some of the best early special effects the movie industry had ever seen.
How about predictions for L.A. in 2019?
- The movie predicted flying cars. Have you seen traffic in Los Angeles?
- Robots would be so human-like they needed a test.
- Smoking indoors was still common in 2019.
- People have already colonized parts of space. We’re on Mars!
- Digital photos do not exist in 2019 but Polaroids do.
