Toyota enlisted the stars of the Back to the Future trilogy -- who, in the second film, jumped ahead to 2015 from 1985 -- to discuss what radical changes the future (read: present) has brought. We still don’t have garbage-fueled powertrains, but the list of successful predictions includes 3-D movies and fingerprint technology.
The full video drops on Back to the Future Day, Wednesday, Oct. 21; we predict it will contain a significant showcase of Lexus’ hoverboard technology. The preview comes in at No. 2 with 3,744,316 views.
Mercedes-Benz showcases its latest automatic-braking technology with help from the fiercest drivers: toddlers.
The trick? The toddlers attempt to crash toy cars, as toddlers do. But these toy cars are uncrashable, setting the future drivers into fits of rage.
You also can catch a peek of Mercedes’ real-life auto-brake technology in the spot, which ranks at No. 3 with 3,219,443 views.
