The Back to the Future franchise turns 30 this year. Back in 1985, Marty McFly hopped in Doc’s DeLorean DMC-12 and traveled through time to October 21st, 2015, just two days from now. Writer and director Robert Zemeckis’ campy prediction of the modern metropolis, then set 30 years into the future, has inspired a handful creative technologies, from a real life hoverboard, to Google Glass-like headsets and flying cars. Now, there's a full-length feature documentary about the BTTF series in the works. In just a couple of days, Marty will arrive in the future—our present—to discover a wide variety of extravagant original technologies. French digital artist and photoshop guru Nicolas Amiard, known for his sci-fi inspired photo manipulations, explores what Zemeckis’ 2015 would look like in today's world in a new GIF series entitled, Back in 2015. Amiard imagines what our world would look like if the technologies and devices foreseen in the Back to the Future II universe actually made it to our modern day cityscapes.
