Nike does not plan on mass producing the Nike Mag. However, in November, Nike will release the HyperAdapt, which uses similar self-lacing technology but is more practical and geared toward athletes.But the Nike Mag is not the only product inspired by the beloved films. There are many other modern day technologies that fans claim the 1989 film predicted.In the film, Marty's son uses a pair of glasses to talk on the phone. We now actually have smart glasses, like Google Glass and Spectacles.The movie also shows future Marty talking to his boss on a video conference. At the time, this was unheard of, but today Skype, FaceTime and other similar applications allow us to talk with and see far away loved ones.Another modern day technology foreseen in the film is the use of fingerprints. In a scene, fingerprints are used to open the doors to a house. Today fingerprint security systems do exist, and fingerprints are used in other technology, like unlocking an iPhone.But while we seem to be living in the future, we're still waiting on the flying Dolorean.
