One of my all time favourite Sci-Fi films Blade Runner: How well did the film predict 2019's tech?

It's November 2019 and Los Angeles is in a state of urban decay. The population has dwindled, and humans face a new threat from manufactured biological robots gone rogue...

Back in 1982, this is how Blade Runner director Ridley Scott imagined the world would be.

How much of the vision was Ridley Scott and how much was Philip K Dick?

Dick's books are remarkable for their invention, vision, breadth, etc. And they're mostly pretty short by today's standards. And look how many of his books and short stories have been turned into films.

He died during the making of Blade Runner, as I recall.
