Step Right Up.

In November, Nike will release its HyperAdapt 1.0 shoes, that automatically adjust to their wearer’s feet. Oh, and they’re self-lacing, just like Back to the Future II predicted we’d have.

Never mind that that flick thought we’d have them since at least October 2015. Predicting the future 20 years out and only being off by one year? That ain’t too bad.

Fortunately, the results are even more accurate when you’re only predicting what’s going to happen in the next seven days. So we can say with a pretty high degree of certainty that here is exactly how it’s going to play out.
