Last Week's Doctor Who Had the Weirdest Star Wars/Back to the Future Easter Egg

It’s almost second nature for sci-fi to be self-referential—not just to itself, but to the wider pantheon of shows and movies. Doctor Who is no stranger to these references, but last week’s episode, “Face the Raven,” had one that was typically Doctor Who: An Easter Egg, hidden inside another Easter Egg! »Tuesday 9:30am11/24/15 9:30am

Back to the Future II expertly edited to show the real 2015

We all know this by now: the 2015 in Back to the Future II didn’t happen in real life. We failed. But!

Hendo 2.0: Tony Hawk Helped Design a New Hoverboard That Actually Hovers

This time last year, we reviewed the Hendo—a real-life hoverboard that actually levitates off the ground (as opposed to whatever this thing is.)

13 Ways That Science Fiction's Vision of the Future is Closer Than You Think

Now that we’re reaching the date depicted in Back to the Future, there’s inevitably a lot of good-hearted ribbing about how we want our damn hoverboards. Plus where’s our flying cars? And so on. But while a few pieces of the science-fictional future have yet to materialize, plenty of others that are already here. »9/04/15 2:40pm9/04/15 2:40pm
