This is shown predominantly when people are entering houses and can be seen in action when the police return young Jennifer to her ‘future home’. Fingerprint technology is used all over the world now with the likes of iPhones fingerprint recognition technology and there are even now keyless entry doors, which involve pressing and scanning your fingerprint, much like in the movie!

Video messaging now seems like it’s been around for ages with the likes of Skype, FaceTime and the newer Facebook video call technology. Video conferencing is used by businesses and individuals around the world on a daily basis and is now a huge part of our lives. This is one thing Back To The Future definitely predicted correctly!
