Added DiffLines:

* It's not that flying cars don't exist, it's that they're not mass produced in quantities to create traffic that might necessitate an infrastructure of lights to direct traffic into air traffic lanes as seen in some movies.

* In the first ''VideoGame/{{Timesplitters}}'' game, the level "Cyberden" is a {{Cyborg}}-filled base. The year the level takes place in is 2005. Incidentally in ''Timesplitters 2'', the level "Neo Tokyo" , which according to Chastity Detroit's bio is meant to be a prequel to "Cyberden", actually takes place at a later date, so [[{{Retcon}} apparently the developers caught this]].

* ''WesternAnimation/AmericanDad'' uses the same joke as ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy,'' showing the year 2045 that looks almost exactly like the present (save for a random pet robotic dog, IIRC).

*** [[Series/{{Elementary Sherlock Holmes]], for one. And that's pretty much it, unless you also want to train your perception to superhuman levels.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where Stewie is transported into the future and sees the buildings: "Everything looks the same?" "Of course! It ''has'' only been thirty years!"

to:

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' where Stewie is transported into the future and sees the buildings: "Everything looks the same?" "Of course! It ''has'' only been thirty years!"years!" Part of that is because he was expecting to have become the ruler of the world by this point, with his genius propelling the world into a new Golden Age (to be fair, he has made a number of amazing inventions, from time machines to interdimensional transportation devices). It's just that his future self has lost the drive to take over the world and is now living a solitary life of a typical office drone. This future does have time travel tourism, though.

A side-effect of SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale. It's very easy to imagine fantastic tools that solve a dozen of today's problems at once, or combine features of two or more unrelated present-day artifacts. It's harder to do the math on how much they would cost to build, or the power input they would need to be used regularly.

* In ''Back to the Doctor'', [[Series/DoctorWho The Doctor]] assumes this is a typical reaction when he and [[Franchise/BackToTheFuture Marty]] arrive in a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture version of 2015. Except Marty reveals that he ''did'' visit a 2015 [[{{Zeerust}} full of holograms, robots, and flying cars]]. The Doctor {{handwave}}s it with his TimeyWimeyBall.
