What technological advancement did ‘Digimon’ anime predict two decades ago?

Modern technology’s one of the best inventions, the metaverse was predicted in not one but two films of this series. Metaverse is a place for humans to experience a virtual life through the internet. Apparently, Digimon predicted it at a time when the internet was far away from the speed and data it is able to process today.

As per Screen Rant, the initial two seasons of the show, Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02, showed how something like that would exist in the future. The series is set in a universe where real individuals are “transported” to a virtual environment to fulfill activities that have real-world consequences.

It is shocking how the creators of the anime predicted something that would not exist for decades to come. However, the creators of Digimon are not the only ones to predict future inventions.

Some of the cool anime predictions that became true

The Ghost in the Shell, which debuted in the year 1995, talked about tech-based crimes or cybercrime in other words. While Chobits on the other hand, featured android phones in 2002 called Persocom. Some of the most realistic-looking mobile phones were shown in the show several years before the arrival of android.

Yet another mind-blowing modern invention was shown in Dragon Ball Z, which resembles today’s Google Lens. As per CBR, some fans believe that the design of the Google lens was actually inspired by a scouter.
