10 Black Mirror Predictions That Turned Out To Be True

    The world is changing so quickly that only one show seems to be keeping up. Black Mirror follows the breakneck trends in technology and presents us with a believable and nerve-wracking future. The cautionary tales of this anthology series feel so real and strangely relatable, it’s almost as if we’re looking at ourselves in the present. That’s probably because much of the technological advancements, cybersecurity threats, and evolved social behaviors are occurring right now in our own reality. So ScreenRant is going through the unbelievable tales of this modern day Twilight Zone and unveiling 10 things from Black Mirror that are already happening.

    Google is giving us self-driving cars and contact lenses are in the works to record memories from the wearer’s point of view. A system of social media-based ratings won’t just be limited to businesses on Yelp, but to each and every person in China. Augmented Reality is more than a tool for gaming manufacturers, it provides a training environment for our government. Robots will replace our appliances, our pets, and perhaps even us. With our jobs set to be taken over by machines, we might have to earn our keeps by participating in merit-based programs. And while we track our health with computers and governments track their enemies with drones, there’s no telling what data is tracked by secret applications and hidden hackers. It’s a scary nightmarish world out there and Black Mirror provides some uncomfortable answers while asking some more concerning questions.

          They should do a "Black Mirror" episode, were the protagonist, turns the table and become the antagonist. To see if the viewers allegiance changes, to see who they ultimately sympathize with.

          Then have them rate the episode, also have the multiple endings option installed. You could have like an ending were the character doesn't change and just become the victim, have him crushed at the end by say... well you get my meaning. Or have him do a John Connor hack the AI & destroys it in time travel. Well... the options could be numerous.

            My hope, is that the final conclusion episode will bring about a coherent conclusion of all the episodes, fan fiction theories are already doing this. :)

                      The drone dogs from Black Mirror were already a real thing. They were created from MIT students a while back. I wouldn't call it a prediction.

                        I wouldn't call much of anything about Black Mirror a prediction, I'd say it's more like our reality than we think.

                                                    Nothing about predicting. All the inventions that has been in Black Mirror has really already been invented in some way BEFORE the actual episodes they have been seen in.

                                                          It's not a prediction if it was already happening. -.-

                                                              So it didn’t predict anything. It used current technology and made them seem scary.

Which is whst I keep thinking people mean. Like when they say "back to the Future predicted hover boards" no. It inspired the people who grew up watching it to eventually make it. Some of these things on this list was surely inspired by the show or vice versa but I don't thing I'd call it predictions.

                                                                  • saddisman
