Sure, it’s 2020, and we don’t yet have flying cars or hoverboards. All the same, the future is looking very bright on the technology front, with tons of futuristic gadgets that would have been considered science fiction just a decade or ago about to become reality. Here are five technologies straight out of your favorite sci-fi movies that are about to hit the mainstream.
1. Foldable Phones
With the release of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the era of foldable phones has officially begun. These gadgets might look like they’re the size of an iPhone, but unfold them and they seamlessly transform into a tablet-sized gadget. Foldable phones are in their infancy now and still very expensive, but it’s easy to imagine super-thin phones that can fold multiple times, transforming your everyday gadget into a modular, do-it-all device.
