Marty McFly traveled 30 years into the future to the year 2015 in the movie "Back to the Future Part II." But how much of the futuristic technology he faced has become a reality?

We still don't have self-tying shoes, but if you look around, the film's vision wasn't too far off the mark.

Video chat is commonplace thanks to Skype and Apple's Facetime and biometric technology allow us to unlock our iPhones and check into the gym. Combine that with services like Lyft and Uber and Biff's biometric cab fare doesn't seem too far off.

It's not quite as smooth as McFly's, but the Hendo Hoverboard is real. Then again, McFly's hoverboard had its own issues.

And how about those self-lacing sneakers? ABC News reports that Nike is working on a pair scheduled for release later this year.

What technology do you think we'll see 30 years from now? Let us know in the comments below.
