The future is now! In our latest infographic we take a look at 10 transport technologies that were predicted in literature and film over the years.

Looking back as far as 1888, our infographic showcases some truly uncanny predictions, from high-speed bullet trains to domestic jetpacks! By exploring the creations of these authors and filmmakers, we can see spookily-similar equivalents in today’s existing and soon-to-be-released transportation technologies.

One of the biggest questions has to be, would all of these technologies exist in reality today without inspiration from these works of fiction?
