How Black Mirror predicted many of the features of the iPhone X

As good technology lovers, surely many of you have seen the Black Mirror series. Each episode of this phenomenal series transforms into a satire on how society today abuses technology , showing us the horrible destiny that the future holds for us if we follow the same path.
Well, it turns out that Black Mirror predicted some of the new iPhone X . And it is, in a way and at least, alarming ...
Since Black Mirror not only matched the design of the new iPhone X in one of its most popular episodes (3 × 01) but also also predicted the Animoji functionality that Apple has introduced in iMessage for iOS 11.

Black Mirror: a mirror of society with a view to the future

As mentioned before, in one of the episodes of the third season of Black Mirror we could see a smartphone with a design really similar , almost identical, to the new Apple iPhone X. The smartphone had a screen that covered the entire front and a very small side bezels.
In addition, the smartphone had tactile gestures very similar to those offered by the iPhone X with the arrival of iOS 11 software.
But the thing does not end here, since Black Mirror also predicted the launch of Animojis . We talk about animated emojis that make use of facial recognition technology to emulate in all details our facial expressions.
In fact, from the official Twitter account of Black Mirror published a GIF of the presentation of the Animojis of iOS 11 on the iPhone X replacing one of the emojis by Waldo , an animation character created for an episode of the series in 2013.
During that episode, Waldo was controlled with a very similar technology that provided him with audio and movement. The animated character went from comedy to politics, with all the danger this entails.
We leave you with a couple of videos about the episodes "The Waldo Moment" and "Nosedive" by Black Mirror.
