When Back to the Future Part II dropped back in the late stages of the go-go '80s, it offered a wild view of an impossible future that is now, weirdly, very real. What looked like fantastical visions of the year 2015 are now, in the year 2022, quietly commonplace. Self-lacing Nikes are now a thing, and while we haven't exactly seen Steven Spielberg's Jaws 19, reality itself often now feels like an installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and its dozens of sequels.
This year's CES tech extravaganza showed just how far we've come, surpassing the day-glo future imagined by one of the best sequels ever made with technology and innovation that puts 20th century imagination to shame.
