Connections: Science Roundtable - Back To The Future 2

Back to the Future 2 took place in... October, 2015. It's our Monthly Science Roundtable, and we're examining the scientific predictions of that blockbuster film. Hoverboards? Video phones? Self-tying shoes? Our panel explores what Hollywood got right and wrong, and what might still be coming. Our guests:

  • Tom Howard, professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering at the University of Rochester
  • Steve Jacobs, director of the laboratory for technological literacy at RIT
  • Steve Manly, professor of physics at the University of Rochester
  • Joe Geigel, professor in the department of computer science at the Rochester Institute of Technology
