Hill Valley's Courthouse Square in 2015.

2015 is a year in the 21st century.

On October 21, 2015, one hour before his past self would arrive with Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker, Dr. Emmett Brown went back in time to prevent a nuclear holocaust in 2045.

A new timeline was created, and most things that they originally witnessed in 2015 never existed.

Original timelineEdit

By this time in history, technology had progressed as much during the 30 years since 1985 as it had during the previous 30 years from 1955 to 1985. Electronics were in virtually everything from clothing to garbage cans to make them move, talk and/or make electronic noises.

Flying cars, once they were invented and perfected, had become so common that drivers no longer needed roads — except perhaps for short journeys. Skyways dominated the skies of central California and eventually the entire world. Cultural influences from other countries, particularly Japan, were more often seen in food and clothing.

Life was lived at a quicker pace than before, in evidence by the speed that people walked down the street, the time it took to cook dinner, and the swiftness of court trials.

Hill Valley underwent a period of gentrification, or revitalization of its downtown. With an increased concern for the environment, the Courthouse Square was landscaped with a large artificial lake (with the surrounding road having NO LANDING markings applied to dissuade drivers of flying cars from bringing their vehicles down near the lake), and businesses were brought back with the construction of an underground Courthouse Mall.

    • Date unknown: After being accidentally sent to 1885, where he settled to raise a family, Doc managed to create a steam time car, which he used to travel from 1893 to 2035. He then traveled in his temporal field generator Mk II from 2035 to 2015 to pick up a Mr. Fusion. After this, he took the Mr. Fusion back with him to 1985, and installed it in the second DeLorean time machine.
    • Thursday, October 22: Griff and his gang are convicted and imprisoned for crashing into the Courthouse.
  • Timeline 5:
    • Wednesday, July 15: Microsoft's failed visions of the future were actually a success, leading to an alternate timeline where Microsoft's failed digital assistants, Clippy and Microsoft Bob, were now holograms that controlled everything. This timeline was erased once Doc Brown took the senior vice president of Microsoft's Server and Tools business, Bob Muglia, back to April 4, 2007 to give a revised version of his "Visions of the Future" speech.
  • Timeline 6:
    • Wednesday, October 21:
      • One hour before his past self would arrive with Marty McFly and Jennifer Parker, Emmett Brown set up a video camera to capture video of a space time correction. He goes back in time to an unknown destination to put his plan in motion.
      • Griff and his gang crash into the Courthouse Mall, and Griff Tannen tries to unsuccessfully implicate Marty McFly Jr.  This seems to imply that Marty and Jennifer allowed their son to get involved with Griff, knowing that their past selves would come to the future to help him.

ActualityEdit

  • In 2015, in real life, there were no widely-produced flying cars, auto-adjusting and auto-drying jackets, power-lacing shoes, etc. Nike had produced prototype power-lacing shoes, there were prototype flying cars, such as the Transition road-able aircraft by Terrafugia, and Falyon Wearable Tech created a prototype auto-drying jacket. However, none of these will be shipping commercially until 2016. Another flying car, the Terrafugia TF-X, is planned for release in 2021.
  • In reality, in 2015, the basic concept of watching multiple channels at once, as exhibited by Marty Jr., technically existed. Televisions offered picture-in-picture functionality and various satellite TV packages offering overviews of certain groups of channels based on genre – like sports or family channels – which could be viewed all at once. Some smart TVs also supported simple voice commands which allow the viewer to control functions such as turning the TV on and off, changing channels, accessing apps, and navigating the internet.
  • Almost all of the billboards shown around Courthouse Square are holographic billboards, which were yet to be widely adopted in reality. The technology required to produce such displays was still in its infancy in 2015.
