'Future' predictions

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The future is here! It's October 21, 2015.

This is the day that Marty McFly arrived 30 years into the future in "Back to the Future Part II."

The movie depicted a future with flying cars, hover boards, shoes with power laces and may other high tech advancements. Some of these predictions have come to fruition.

We went to the campus of Southeast Missouri State University and asked people what they think we'll be seeing 30 years from Wednesday.

"Hoverboards. I know they have a hoverboard coming out, but it's not, like, functional. Everybody doesn't have it. Hoverboards for everybody, kind of like skateboards now."

"Some kind of life on other planets, mainly Mars, would most likely be my guess as to where we would find it."

"Lots of new technology and helpful robots."

"I would really like to see the Cubs make it to the World Series."

The movie famously predicted the Cubs winning the World Series. In perhaps a bit of irony, the Cubs' hopes of making it could end on Wednesday night as they take on the Mets in Game 4 of the NLCS.

The Cubs are down three games to none.
