To help you celebrate it here are some great clips from the trilogy:

Oh and how does this relate to innovation@work?
2 years ago I attended Dreamforce ’13, and saw Salesforce co-founder Parker Harris makes a surprise entrance dressed as Doc Brown — but in a white Tesla, not a DeLorean.

What a fun innovative way to emphasize the company’s achievement in maintaining backwards compatibility with previous iterations of its developer platform in the newly launched Salesforce1 release.

Can you imagine your company’s CEO dressed up as Doc Brown?

Do you remember how it all started?

As you’ve probably figured out by now, I’m participating in the #AmdocsGoSocial blogging competition, and my focus and inspiration throughout the competition is 30 years to the Back to the Future movie trilogy.

Do you remember how it all started? Watch Back to the Future 1985 — OPENING TITLE SEQUENCE here

Do you remember this dog feeding machine? What an amazing innovation, and a brilliant home hack to solve a big vacation problem: How to feed my dog while I’m away?  It didn’t work so well for Doc Brown back in 1985, maybe it will work better now in 2015.

Back to the Future hoverboards – the best movie hack ever !

Did you know? We’re celebrating 30 years to the “Back to the Future” movie trilogy that was first released in 1985. In fact, we’re just a few days away from 21 October 2015 — the exact date that Doc Brown and Marty McFly visited from 1985 in the movie’s part II.

Part II introduced some great lifehacks, but the one I like most is obviously the hoverboards (a.k.a flying skateboards). We all wanted one, and many people thought it’s just a matter of time before the will become available to the public. Unfortunately that didn’t happen yet.

According to the movie’s director Robert Zemeckis, the 2015 depicted in the film was not meant to be an accurate depiction of the future, and in fact it was the least enjoyable part of making the whole trilogy. Nevertheless, the movie did make some astonishingly accurate predictions about the state of modern technology for example automated homes and flatscreen TVs, but there are some modern marvels we never saw coming.

See here the 2015 tech that ‘Back to the Future Part II’ predicted, and what it missed
