* ''Webcomic/{{Freefall}}'': Near the end of a recent story arc, some robots are discussing their recently granted status as citizens. One robot wonders if that means representation. Another wonders if representation will lead to taxation. In early 2017, Creator/BillGates [[https://www.ft.com/content/d04a89c2-f6c8-11e6-9516-2d969e0d3b65 proposed taxing robots or the profits derived from them]].

* ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'' had a rather embarrassing incident for Denise Nickerson, who played Violet Beauregarde. For the most part, the factory scenes were shot in chronological order, with the child actors leaving right after filming their downfalls. After filming her infamous transformation into a blueberry, Nickerson flew home to New York. Two days later, she was sitting in math class when all the students started staring at her: she was turning blue! As it turned out, the makeup had seeped into her pores and was resurfacing.

** Creator/JJAbrams, who directed ''The Force Awakens'', had done the same thing for a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan in 2013, showing an unfinished cut of ''Film/StarTrekIntoDarkness'', which Abrams also directed, before the fan passed away.

** The same story also predicted online television, on-demand television, online video chat, the various other mundane uses that people would use the internet and home computers for, and even made a pretty good guess as to what desktop computers look like.

* Creator/EESMith described a command and control system he invented for the {{Lensman}} setting which allowed the heroes to direct the movements of thousands of starships all across the galaxy in a manner that was comprehensible for a single commander to understand what was happening and coordinate. A US Navy Admiral informed Smith after the war that the command and information control centers (ops rooms) the US Navy ultimately placed in their warships to manage and coordinate ship and fleet actions, now used by warships worldwide, was directly inspired by and based on Smith's creation.

* At one point in ''Film/UrbanLegend'', Alicia Witt's character goes to the university's SpookySilentLibrary to do some research and finds ''The Encyclopedia of Urban Legends''. No book with that title ever existed until ''after'' the movie was made and released (this isn't a case of {{Defictionalization}} or TheRedStapler; folklore professor and author Jan Harold Brunvand says in his introduction to the real ''Encyclopedia'' that it had been in development for quite some time before the film was even being made).
