Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Future, but not so far into it that you'd notice except for the abundance of Applied Phlebotinum. This is often a linear extrapolation of national malaise or existing crises, so American works of the 1970s have endlessly skyrocketing crime and inner urban decay note  true enough in places like Detroit, Michigan, but wildly wrong in general; cities like NYC are safer today than ever before whereas the 1980s brought the notion that Mega Corps and Japan (especially Japanese megacorps) would rule the world. When the 1990s came around, the US economy recovered while the Japanese economy tanked; The Great Politics Mess-Up and subsequent collapse of many authoritarian communist regimes drastically changed the political picture of both the present and the future. Instead of criminal anarchy or corporate governance, there's a lot more focus on how technology has come to permeate everyday life and challenge long-held conceptions of the individual and society as a whole. And, of course, works in the '90s naturally assumed that from that point on the only murderous enemies Americans would have to worry about would be right-wing militia fanatics, homicidal teenagers, and maybe the occasional petty dictator, but no one else. With the Turn of the Millennium and the New Tens, the issue seems to have become extreme Right-Wing dystopias and/or endless American Interventionalism in the Middle East and Central Asia, occasionally spreading into South America, Africa, or Southeast Asia.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Obviously, 20 Minutes into the Future is the setting of most Flash Forward stories, though they usually don't make a big deal of it except as a minor joke. Of course, Science Marches On, so it's fun to watch 10 years later to see how wrong they got it. Television series are especially prone to this, as they tend to make use of various props, costumes, and effects that reflect the sensibilities of their time but become increasingly dated over a long run.
Both Max Headroom and Brazil lampshade the Zeerust problem by setting themselves explicitly "20 Minutes into the Future" and "Somewhere in the Twentieth Century", respectively (rather than identifying specific dates), and by mixing up production designs and costumes that would have been considered "futuristic" in the '80s with random elements from previous decades.
Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })See also Next Sunday A.D., which is completely indistinguishable from the present, but claims to be happening in the future anyway. How much Applied Phlebotinum it takes to flip Next Sunday A.D. into full-scale Twenty Minutes into the Future is an interesting question, since many stories employing fictional technology are actually set in the present. Can result in I Want My Jetpack if the writers set the work not sufficiently far into the future, and the year the work was set in comes in real life without any of the new technology it featured. Compare to Urban Fantasy as the magical version. If you want to know a more "reversed" version of this trope (futuristic technology in the past), see Schizo Tech. Inverted by 20 Minutes into the Past.

Predator 2, released in 1990, predicts the grim voodoo gangs of 1997 Los Angeles. For the most part, the movie's future setting ages well, with the exception of the voodoo gangs and the heavily modified guns the police carry. No flying cars or bizarre mainstream fashions, though fedoras seem to have come back.

Puella Magi Madoka Magica averts this by using contemporary yet not entirely widespread technology and plastering it everywhere. Interactive whiteboards and digital picture frames already existed back in 2011 when the series was released, but they were and still are quite expensive to be used at a large scale; in Madoka Magica, they were everywhere and had already displaced plain whiteboards and picture frames. Word of God is that it takes place in 2011, the same year it was released. The only exception may or may not be Sayaka's MP3 player which can also snap open and play conventional Compact Discs, which looks pretty sleek but was very much plausible state-of-the-art technology for 2011. It's stated that the presence of the Masquerade has accelerated technological development to some degree.

The Astro Boy manga, original publication 1951, had the titular robot boy being created on April 7, 2003, a time in which robots and flying cars were routine. When that date rolled around, the flying cars and robots were absent, but we did get a new television series, first broadcast on that exact date in Japan. At the very least, the Japanese government granted full citizenship to Astro Boy.

The Shape of Things to Come is a similar mix of prophetic and outlandish-in-hindsight, with submarine-launched ballistic missiles, and Poland being a military match for Germany. In fact, depending on how you look at it, this could probably be applied to most of his works.

The 1992 series Wild Palms was set fifteen years in the future, with technology and fashion that look nothing like that of the real 2007, assuming a revival of Edwardian-inspired fashion. And a lounge-style revival of popular sixties tunes.

"Profession": This story explores the idea of a society at least four thousand years in the future, where Neural Implanting has replaced mainstream schooling and Faster-Than-Light Travel has been used to colonize multiple worlds. The most precious resource isn't metals or living space; it is the creative drive to invent and innovate.

The Jetsons. It takes place in 2062 (100 years from the day of the show's launch). This was parodied in Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, where the Jetsons came from the year 2002 to the distant past of 2004. In the Jetsons' time, they use punch cards, got meals from instant devices, and have huge personal communicators.

Danganronpa V3: Killing Harmony seems to be this way. There's a Ridiculously Human Robot within the cast, and the Class Trial room, instead of a circle, is now composed of hovering glowing platforms that move around, and the Ultimate Academy seems to have been abandoned for a long time. This was intentional on the part of Team Danganronpa, who wanted to create an After the End feel. That is, the in-universe Team Danganronpa, who adapted the fictional killing games into the real world.

"The Last Question": The story opens in 2061 AD, over a hundred years into the future from when this was published, and still somewhat similar to modern day, while characters celebrate that all energy generation has been changed over to a version of solar power that is sufficient for all the world's needs. The next scene jump, however, places the setting into distant future territory.

Hydrophobia is based sometime in the mid 21st century. The global human population has reached crisis points and Thomas Malthus' theories on population seem to be right, all-be-it slightly delayed. The game takes place on a massive city-sized luxury ocean vessel that has already been in operation for 10 years prior the events of the game.

it's such a beautiful day: This story was first published in 1955, but takes place in 2117. The mother in the story is fairly easy to identify as a 1950s suburban housewife, but the house contains a number of technological marvels suited for events taking place over 160 years into the future.

Dark Angel made in 2000, takes place in 2019, with a backstory where in 2009 terrorists set off an EMP, turning the United States into a third world hellhole. Which keeps it from looking too dated; Dark Angel 2019 looks like regular 2019 except shittier. The only significant technological differences are the Transhuman people running around, and they were a secret project anyway, and the Police State flying drones that look very similar to real world drones.

In the 1979 movie and subsequent TV series Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, the titular character, Buck begins his journey in May 1987 in a deep space probe that was supposed to last a few months. Something goes wrong and he's frozen for 504 years. When he's awakened from his frozen state, he learns that a nuclear World War III, which took place on November 22, 1987, has made most of Earth uninhabitable.

In the 2014 version, which is set in the 2040s but filmed in 2013, cars don't seem to have changed all that much in 30 years and except for more advanced phones, super-advanced robotic arms, and robots being used in a military capacity, there's not much to indicate this is the future. Cars look very much the same as they did in 2013, and the same goes for guns.

Metroid 1: The 1987 Official Nintendo Player's Guide describes how the Galactic Federation was founded in the distant, far-flung year of 2000, and that Samus's mission (and, by extension, this game) takes place in 2005. It's uncertain if this was ever canon according to Japanese materialsnote Considering the amount of minute story details which are present and accurately represented in the guide, it's a distinct possibility, but if it was, rest assured that it isn't any more.

"The Feeling of Power": This story is set so far into the future, Faster-Than-Light Travel is an Implied Trope and Earth has lost the ability to do Mathematics without a computer. Computers, when this story was written, were always large, bulky things, but Isaac Asimov predicted people would carry around pocket computers.

Deus Ex: Invisible War moves the setting 20 years and into the actually future. Bio-modification (with super-advanced biological nanotech) is commonplace, the nation-state is gone and replaced with competing international interest groups, a Borg-like hivemind of cyborgs controls the black market, and nanotechnology can now build or dismantle large cities in a matter of minutes.

The Simpsons episode "Lisa's Wedding" features a look at the year 2010, which was at the time of the episode's airing 15 years into the future. The changes are a bit hard to detail, but perhaps the funniest change is that Moe now has an eyepatch, and when he says to Hugh (Lisa's fiancée) that the Americans saved the British's "arse" back in WWII, Hugh retorts, "we saved your arse in World War III." And Big Ben is a digital clock that nobody has figured out how to set (i.e. it still blinks 12:00).

The seventh and final season of Parks and Recreation was aired in 2015 and took place in 2017. It played with minor advances in technology, like holographic tablets made by new social media giant Gryzzl, and other celebrity and pop-culture news, e.g. the Cubs winning the World Series, Elton John owning Chic-Fil-A and Shailene Woodley and Morgan Freeman having an epic feud.

The original Mega Man games were set in the year 200X, later changed to 20XX. The continuation of the series, Mega Man X, was set in 21XX. Posterior series in the franchise, such as Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX would be set even further still.

The exact timeline of Zombie Ranch been kept deliberately vague (although references are made to the present day as a not-too-distant past), but a lot of the technology shown already exists in some form or is in development. There's definitely some Phlebotinum at work, though, not only in the form of zombie-based miracle drugs but devices like the free floating camera drones.

Alien Nation:
The TV series (and the film) was set in the near-future of the early to mid 1990s. The TV movies took place in the late 1990s and early 2000s: Emily was 13 in "Dark Horizon" and presumably between 16 and 18 in "The Udara Legacy", as she was still attending high school. The transition from TV series to TV movies involved some unfortunate timeline-tweaking with rather inconsistent aging. For the record, you could smoke in the police station, there were a few gags about non-existent sequels to famous movies (Back to the Future VI, etc.), and by the TV movies they had video-phones... but the cars still looked distinctively Eighties. At the time, they were using the most aerodynamic and "futuristic" looking cars they could get. Also, the computer user interfaces are also distinctively Eighties or "Graphic-DOS" styled, with no notion of CUA-like interfaces anywhere... but Internet has been replaced by something called "Optinet". One of the movies has a computer with a then-futuristic touch screen (running what looks basically like Windows 95).

In the old Buck Rogers comics, at one point the hero-pirate Black Barney is trapped on the floor of a Martian ocean, and discovers the wreckage of the first manned Earth-to-Mars expedition, launched in 1949. This was still some years away at the time of the strip, and would also be after Buck Rogers started his long nap.

Ron Planet, by the creators of Homestar Runner, puts a unique twist on the concept by taking place in a near-future like our own time, except that humanity has completely given up on space exploration. Rather than being a high-tech future or a Crapsack World, it is disappointingly realistic. The plot revolves around the world's last astronaut, Ron Planet, who does freelance work (hey, somebody's got to maintain all those satellites).

Transformers: The Movie and the third season of the 1986 cartoon are set in the early 21st century (in the far-off year 2005). It is roughly 20 years after the original series just far enough forward for Spike to have grown up and had a son. Likewise, Transformers Energon is set just long enough after Transformers Armada for the human characters to have grown up. Does anyone remember having cars like those, wearing pimped-out space suits (whilst still on Earth), the government setting up a publicly known organization to counter alien threats, building space-craft capable of traveling entire galaxies away or riding around on their hoverboards? To be fair though, much of the technological achievements present in that universe could be chalked up to having the Autobots sharing Cybertronian technology with us if you wanna provide an excuse.

Serial Experiments Lain has a creepy Opening Narration that states "present day, present time", but it's obvious by the iPhone-like HandyNAVIs and the existence of a Cyberspace that this was not the case for its launch year of 1997 — if anything, it looks much more like the world as it actually developed by 2020. This is a direct Shout-Out to Max Headroom's original opening. There are however some indications that it actually takes place in an Alternate Universe.

Real Account would be an example of Next Sunday A.D., being almost identical to the early 2010s era it is based off of, if not for the titular social network, which purports to unify the diversified functions of such services onto one convenient platform.

Grand Theft Auto 2 took place 'in the near future'. 3 hints to its time were given, yet they all contradict each other. The manual states "3 weeks into the future" while entries on the official website are dated 2013. As if that wasn't enough to throw you off, a DJ on the radio states "The millennium's a' comin'!". There wasn't much future technology to be seen, although a few examples exist - one of the weapons is an electric arc gun and one of the gangs is hinted to use Expendable Clones as mooks.

The Outer Limits (1963) episode "The Duplicate Man", filmed in 1964, is set in 2025, when space travel is common, cloning has been outlawed and statues of alien lifeforms are exhibited in a museum. The smaller changes from the present are also interesting: future tech includes Video Phones (with rotary dials!) and light-activated drinking fountains, and the protagonist wears an early Beatles-style collarless suit and drives a Cool Car that's actually a customized Buick Riviera created for the film For Those Who Think Young.

The Outer Limits (1995): The setting of several episodes.
"Resurrection" takes place in 2009, 12 years after humanity was wiped out in a biological war on July 24, 1997.
"Unnatural Selection" and its sequel "Criminal Nature" take place at an indeterminate point in the near future when genetic engineering of children, resulting in Designer Babies, is relatively common in spite of the fact that it is illegal. However, this DNA alteration can result in Genetic Rejection Syndrome.
"The Refuge" takes place in the 2000s, by which time it is common for patients with incurable diseases to be placed in stasis until cures can be found.
"The Deprogrammers" takes place in the near future, two years after Earth was conquered by the Torkor. Millions of humans have been brainwashed into becoming the perfect slaves.
"The Hunt" takes place at a time in the near future when hunting animals has been banned and obsolete androids are hunted instead, though the practice is illegal.
"The Joining" takes place in 2011 and 2012, by which time the United States has established the research facility Aphrodite on Venus and is preparing a mission to Jupiter.
"Joyride" takes place in 2001, then two years in the future, when the first commercial spaceflight is launched.
"Essence of Life" takes place in 2014, eleven years after a devastating plague.
"Gettysburg" correctly predicted that an African-American man would be U.S. President in 2013.
"Patient Zero" involves a soldier named Colonel Beckett from 2015 who travels back in time to 2001 to stop the outbreak of a plague which killed billions of people, including his family.
"Family Values" takes place in January 2003, by which time household robots are becoming common.
"The Surrogate" takes place at some point after May 2002, then one year into the future.
"The Vessel" takes place several years after 2003.

The original Half-Life 1 took place sometime during the 2000s. The sequel takes place 20 years later. Fans have debated the exact date of the Black Mesa Incident quite heavily. According to the Half-Life wiki, the exact year is most likely 2003 though 2008 is also possible. 1998 was a third option until Word of God dismissed it as a mistake.

In Dragon's Egg, The first human section is the year 2020 in a book written in 1980. There's not a lot of tech development though, there are no personal computers and no internet. The idea of any computer time being such a valuable resource that you have to pay for in the year 2020 is kind of funny in retrospect.
Perfectly reasonable for a timesharing system, even today. However, what the grad student is doing with the computer doesn't seem like something that would have required more than a quite modest personal computer in 2020.
The later sections of the book are set in the year 2050.

The heroes of Power Rangers Time Force hail from the year 3001. Most of the action takes place in 2001, though (the present day at the time of airing), so it's hard to say how advanced (or not) society is by then. At the very least, aliens are common, there are flying cars, and it's mentioned that junk food has been outlawed. Oh, and Designer Babies are normal, with mutant failures bearing the brunt of Fantastic Racism.

Gackt's vampire-yakuza movie Moon Child starts at the Millennium celebrations in Tokyo, then jumps forward to various points in the main characters' lives, passing 2014, and "A few years later". The setting has Japan devastated by an economic crisis leading to massive emigration to a fictional city on what appears to be Taiwan, where Japanese are low-class.

The original Star-Lord stories took place in the early 90's (the comics themselves began publication in 1976), but this was retconned to the present when the character entered the mainstream Marvel Universe during Annihilation. Star-Lord was later given a revised origin in Guardians of the Galaxy that removed all of these aspects.

Power Rangers:
Power Rangers Lost Galaxy intro implied it took place in a close future, in which mankind was able to build space colonies with interstellar travel capacities. Next series, Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue, had a crossover which took place after Galaxy ending, and Earth technology could build Zords, so it was reasonable to assume it took place in the future. However, it was retconned as happening in current time due to crossover with Time Force (which took place in 2001 despite Rangers coming from the future)
Power Rangers S.P.D.: Rubber-Forehead Aliens live among us in 2025 and no one seems bothered in the least by this. But if you happen to be a human with special genetic abilities, you're an outcast.
The setting of the first half of Power Rangers Lost Galaxy, until the writers outright forgot that they'd claimed the show was "In the not-too-distant future".
The heroes of Power Rangers Time Force hail from the year 3001. Most of the action takes place in 2001, though (the present day at the time of airing), so it's hard to say how advanced (or not) society is by then. At the very least, aliens are common, there are flying cars, and it's mentioned that junk food has been outlawed. Oh, and Designer Babies are normal, with mutant failures bearing the brunt of Fantastic Racism.
Power Rangers RPM. Exact date unknown, but it's at least 2013 (aired in 2009, plus about a year After the End and a three-year buildup beforehand). According to some sources, it takes place in 2085 - but according to others, it's an Alternate Continuity, and so could be an alternate '09.

Neon Genesis Evangelion:
The original series, first aired on Japanese television in 1995-96, is explicitly set in the year 2015, with a Back Story involving an apocalyptic cataclysm in the year 2000. Despite having artificially intelligent computers, giant biomechs, and the ability to sequence a genome stored in particle wave matter in seconds, the Japanese government's nuclear-powered giant robot runs MS-DOS, and the wifi-enabled laptops in schools (despite doing wireframe 3D modeling) can only draw dialogue boxes using ASCII art. Shinji uses an "SDAT" personal stereo, a fictional product in similar vein to the Digital Compact Cassette (a format that launched straight into obscurity in 1992) — in other words, a cassette player. Could be explained as the result of Second Impact stalling technological advances in all fields except those relating to the threat at hand.
Rebuild of Evangelion justifies the tape player by establishing that it was his father's, and therefore has sentimental value.
In the ending of the manga adaptation (which finished in 2013), a Cosmic Retcon resets the timeline so that said apocalyptic event never occurred. The brief glimpses we see of the new 2015 are much more in line with present-day fashion and technology.

The first season of 24, aired in 2001, was set in March 2004 (as retroactively indicated by a shot of a character's driver license shown in season 4), and each following season has been set a few years after the previous one. (The most recent season, the show's sixth, aired in 2007 and was set in 2013; the seventh season, which began in January 2009 is set in November 2017.) Could be Twenty Seconds into the Future if not for the Applied Phlebotinum (real-time satellite surveillance, handheld remote heartbeat sensors, &c.) that pops up from time to time.

Remnants, first published in 2001 and set in 2011, is on the low end of this. There are self-driving cars, and minors can "drive" alone in some states; kids can apparently legally change their names easily, or else have all just decided to use weird nicknames like "2Face" and "Mo'Steel"; and the ubiquitous use of "links" turned out to be a fairly close prediction of cellphone culture. Oh, and there's some very experimental hibernation technology, but it's nowhere near safe enough for humans to use yet. Or wouldn't be, if book #1 didn't end with eighty humans having to blast off in a Sleeper Starship to escape the Earth's destruction (thus rendering most of the other technological changes moot). About half wake up 500 years later, while the rest Passed in Their Sleep.

World of Warcraft: Played with in the final content of Cataclysm. The Hour of Twilight instance and the Dragon Soul raid both take place in modern Azeroth's Dragonblight, with Deathwing and the Old Gods laying siege to Wyrmrest Temple, but are both accessed through the Caverns of Time. Also, for obvious reasons regarding Wrath's content, non-instanced Dragonblight looks exactly the same. To any character it can seem like these two instances are set 20 minutes into Azeroth's future.

The little-known 1982 anime film Future War 198X; The title says it all. At the time this film was made, it was assumed that whatever might happen to ignite a third world war would happen sometime in that decade. Given the political climate at the time, there was excellent reason to believe that the 1980s would be the "make it or break it" decade as far as U.S./Soviet relations were concerned.

Niven & Barnes wrote Dream Park in 1981, set it in 2051, and doomed it to datedness by making reference to an earthquake that'd leveled Los Angeles in 1985. In the first sequel, they retconned the quake to 1995, and in the second to 2005. They also retconned the first two novels' use of holographic displays to incorporate virtual reality elements in book three; ironically, this makes the tech in The California Voodoo Game seem less advanced than what's in Dream Park or (especially) The Barsoom Project, as mechanisms which were kept discretely off-stage in the earlier books are much more intrusive in the last.

Grand Theft Auto:
Grand Theft Auto 2 took place 'in the near future'. 3 hints to its time were given, yet they all contradict each other. The manual states "3 weeks into the future" while entries on the official website are dated 2013. As if that wasn't enough to throw you off, a DJ on the radio states "The millennium's a' comin'!". There wasn't much future technology to be seen, although a few examples exist - one of the weapons is an electric arc gun and one of the gangs is hinted to use Expendable Clones as mooks.
Averted in Grand Theft Auto III and the other games in its continuity - it took place in 2001, the same year it was released, and the next four games were all prequels variously set between 1984 and 1998.

The majority of Gerry Anderson's series, such as Stingray, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet take place 100 years from the date the shows were being made, setting them in the 2060's. The biggest oddities are relatively small nuclear reactors (which permit most of the rest of the vehicle technology) and whatever heavy duty equipment allows WASP to hide their city underground.

Accel World is set in 2046 but it doesn't seem that different from modern day Japan, aside from a few technological differences. Ditto for Sword Art Online, from the same author, which was set in 2012-2016 in the web novel version (written in 2002) before being shifted 10 years into the future for the published version.

The main plot of the 2009 novel Limit takes place in 2025. Author Frank Schätzing explained in an interview that although 2050 would be more realistic for the technologies portrayed, he considered it more important to immerse the reader in a time in which he or she might still be alive.

Each game in the Metal Gear series (with the exception of prequels) is set nearly a decade after the ones when they were released: the first Metal Gear 1, originally released in 1987, is set in the placeholder date of 199X (later established to be 1995 or '96, depending on the source), Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake, released in 1990, is set in 1999; Metal Gear Solid, released in 1998, is set in 2005; Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, released in 2001; is set in 2007 and '09; Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots, released in 2008, is set in 2014; Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, released in 2013, is set in between 2016 and '18.

Averted in Grand Theft Auto III and the other games in its continuity - it took place in 2001, the same year it was released, and the next four games were all prequels variously set between 1984 and 1998.

1984 by George Orwell was allegedly titled when Orwell inverted the year of its authorship (1948). However, the early 1980s featured a great deal of hand-wringing about whether or not we'd succumbed to Orwell's dystopia. To be fair, Winston isn't sure that the year actually is, since the records have been tampered with so often and so thoroughly.

In Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, a Freeze-Frame Bonus calendar◊ and the expiration date on Mizusaki's credit card shows the anime is set in the year 2051.note 2051 is the only year in the 2050s where January starts on a Sunday This means the anime that inspired Asakusa was over 70 years old when she first watched it. However, the future as portrayed in the series doesn't seem very futuristic aside from some slightly more advanced technology and some implications that Japan has become more racially diverse.

Android Announcer Maico 2010 (made in 1998) provides another example of how hard prediction is. In 2010, the android Maico's first OS (operating system) is on a 3 1/2 inch floppy, and her full OS is on 50 CDs. It's now 2010, and Windows 7 is a 20 gigabyte OS supplied on DVDs or downloaded from the Net... and most people can't even remember the last time they used a floppy disk.

In The Last Days of FOXHOUND, the rather messy dating of the Metal Gear series is avoided by the use of 200X, typically on the cover of "The American Journal of Inaccurate Genetics", or just plain covered up, like this.

Trauma Center: It's 2018. AIDS has been eradicated, tumors can be removed by a simple process, and there's a wonderful antibiotic gel that disinfects, arrests bleeding and instantly heals small wounds. On the other hand, weird man-made parasites called GUILT are tearing up your organs from the inside, petrifying your liver and wrapping webs around your heart, draining it of its energy.

A Clockwork Orange takes place in a violent, crime-ridden, dystopian London where people still listen to records. Nothing ever clearly establishes the precise timeline of the book's events, but it doesn't appear to be too far from the present at the time, with the exceptions of a (slightly?) more corrupt law enforcement and new slang words.

Batman Beyond is set fifty years into the future of the DC Animated Universe (counting from whenever the present presently is), and by then Neo-Gotham's a Cyberpunk dystopia of human gene splicing, flying cars, Kill Sats, big, brick-like cell phones, and night clubs that play nothing but industrial techno.
Oh, and Bruce Wayne had retired 20 years before the events of the show, as shown in a prologue scene during the first episode. Aside from Bruce being older and wearing a new batsuit, hardly anything else looks any different from the 'modern' Gotham City during this sequence.
Meanwhile, Justice League has huge space stations with artificial gravity, a Kill Sat, sentient robots and lasers. Having people like Lex Luthor and other mad scientists around probably helps, as well as reverse-engineered alien technology.
Widespread AI is the premise behind The Zeta Project spin-off, which shows more of the Batman Beyond world outside of Gotham.

The "present day" of Quantum Leap is set in the far-off future of 1999. From what little we see of the future during the series, cars are more streamlined and can go faster, electric cars have their own lanes, some cars have holographic displays and tracking devices, prostitution is legal, and women wear clothing that lights up. But firearms, military uniforms, and congressional committees haven't changed. Guess Beckett altered history more than Al or Ziggy expected him to...
The late 1990s were chosen most likely because Bellisario wanted to keep the time-travelling within Sam's lifetime, but also within the audience's past. Therefore, the show's "present" needed to be futuristic, but couldn't be too far in the future.
Project Quantum Leap is a black project, so it could still take/have taken place.

The Sims is never said to take place at any specific time in the Simverse, although The Sims 2 is set around 25 years after the original while The Sims 3 is set 25 years before. The neighborhoods are very similar (well, with the limitations of the game) to our current society and levels of technology (with some differences between each game) - except for the robots (both A.I.s that begin functioning as household servants but can be freed and helpful household robots), aliens, werewolves, ninja teleportation, resurrection, the Grim Reaper, zombies, plantsims (Sims that function like plants, needing oxygen and water to survive), and more.

Inverted in Stargate SG-1 in the episode "2010", where contact with an advanced civilization willing to share technology makes 2010 a much different world than it was at the time of filming. A very visible bit of Zeerust is the fashions of this 2010: taking a cue from Wild Palms, President Kinsey wears an outfit that would look more at home in 1910.

Call of Duty: Black Ops II: Parts of the game are set in the year 2025. The major differences from the present day seen in-game include mass proliferation of combat drone technology, weapons that are prototypes today shown in common use, China having formed a multinational Strategic Defence Coalition that threatens world peace, commercially available VTOL aircraft, and a super-expensive resort city on a mobile, floating island. On the other hand, nightclubs on said island still play Skrillex.

The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant, the book that was the basis for the musical Damn Yankees, was published in 1954, but set in 1958. The musical, which came out in 1955, "takes place some time in the future" according to the first edition, though the setting is now acknowledged to be The '50s in all non-supernatural aspects.

Inverted in Halo; though the first game takes place in 2552, with the overall series taking place in the 26th century, most of humanity's technology is remarkably close to present day, with a few exceptions, such as anti-gravity warships, holographic AIs, portable railguns and powered battle armor. This was lampshaded by the original Bungie developers, who jokingly realized that for 500 plus years of innovation, combat will have advanced way beyond what Halo depicts. Something along the lines of "combat just 250 years from now will be, I drink something, and everyone else on the battlefield dies." That said, current developers 343 Industries have been moving Halo's humans towards a more recognizably futuristic society.

The I-Land: The time period of the "outside world" is never stated, but implied to be several decades into the future. Aside from the virtual reality experiment, the prison is outfitted with state of the art-technology such as laser fencing, drone surveillance units, and gravitation fields used to restrain people. Many other features are still the same, especially in terms of fashions.

The MTV sketch comedy show The State lampooned this idea with a sketch where a man wakes up in a hospital after only a short time knocked out in an accident only to find that he missed the "most exciting 15 minutes in the history of the world", and now aliens have landed and all sorts of things have changed.

The Tribe was a post-apocalyptic series set in a Type 2 Teenage Wasteland after a mysterious virus killed off all the adults. Based on the technology commonly used and traded by the various Tribes (CD players, egg-shaped original iMacs, no iPods), the Virus struck some time in the late '90s or early '00s.

Cultural trends seem to repeat themselves exactly 1000 years later, mostly so the writers can make fun of current events and fads. This extends beyond the timeframe the show is set in, as silent holograms are a thing of the past and the Professor is shown to have gone through a disco phase and, earlier, a hippy phase. In the pilot, it is also shown that a medieval society arose at some point while Fry was frozen and given URL's line "I'm going to get 24th-century on his ass," this probably was also offset by 1000 years.

Lost in Space (2018): The series is set "30 years in the future", from an unspecified baseline that is most likely the show's release year (2018). The major difference is part of the show's premise: a meteor impact has caused serious environmental damage. Human society looks pretty similar but we have some cool computer tech and, of course, spaceships that can travel to Alpha Centauri.

Ennui GO!: Set about 2030 or so, judging by Hashim's comment that since Extreme Sports ended in 2000, all contestants have to be at least 50. The only advance is that prosthetics have evolved to cybernetics. Also, US Presidents are genetically engineered human/beetle hybrids after Donald Trump's term, although this is meant to be a secret (shhh!).

Downplayed in Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders, which was released in 1988 and takes place in 1997, with two visible technological "advances": People exclusively use "Cash Cards" instead of actual cash, and TVs no longer seem to have buttons on them.
It is however revealed very early that the alien villains have been downgrading human intelligence for a while in preparation for their invasion, which would have inhibited developments. After the Skolarian device is activated, their attempts are undone and human intelligence is restored to normal. The telephone systems are completely abolished (as they had been used by the villains), and are replaced by telepathy and dream-sharing for communication.

The Old Grey Hare is a 1944 Bugs Bunny cartoon in which Bugs and Elmer are shown in the year 2000. The only actual wrong predictions are read in the newspaper, where "Smell-O-Vision" is announced to replace television and Bing Crosby (who died in 1977) and Carl Stalling (who died in 1972) are implied to still be alive.

One of the places that they liked to reference and visit in Star Trek. Star Trek: The Original Series gave us some troubling news about genocidal wars of the 1990s. Star Trek: Deep Space Nine visited the second quarter of the 21st century. When TOS visited the near-future world of 1968 in "Assignment: Earth" and Star Trek: Voyager flashed back to 2000 in 1999, those were examples of Next Sunday A.D..
Quite niftily, one episode of TOS that came out in 1967 ("Tomorrow Is Yesterday") had the crew going back in time to the late sixties—where they pick up a radio broadcast talking about a manned moon launch coming up on Wednesday. Guess what happened on a Wednesday in 1969 in real life.
With the Deep Space Nine example, the two-parter "Past Tense", the staff were creeped out to find that they'd actually foreseen a situation that hit reality much earlier than they predicted. In the show, San Francisco in 2024 has concentrated its homeless population into walled "Sanctuary Districts". In real life, the mayor of Los Angeles proposed something eerily similar to clean up the downtown area. The proposal was announced while the episode was filming.

Gargoyles, which is primarily Urban Fantasy, uses this to add some sci-fi elements to the plot. Though the world mostly resembles America in the late 1990s, there are a few William Gibson-esque MegaCorps with everything from Powered Armor to Cool Airships to nanobots at their disposal.

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra is set roughly ten years in the future, and while styles in clothing and automobiles seem more or less unchanged from the present, exotic (but semi-plausible) technologies like Powered Armor, Energy Weapons, Invisibility Cloaks and metal-eating Nanomachines are out in full force. Since the film is believed to be in a Shared Universe with the Transformers series, one can assume that this futuristic technology was reverse engineered from Cybertronian technology. The fact that G.I. Joe is in the "near future" could be taken to mean that the Autobot-Decepticon conflict is already over, or at least no longer set on Earth. It could also be taken to mean that the Autobots have either repaired or helped to repair the damage done to the pyramids in Giza by Devastator in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, during the ten-year gap between both movies, as Revenge of the Fallen is set in 2009.

Looper takes place in the year 2044, in an unnamed city in Kansas that looks very futuristic, but also suffers from massive poverty and rampant drug use, and is run entirely by criminals. Incidentally, the film is also being influenced from 2074, twenty minutes into their future, because the crime syndicates of that era use time travel to send people they need killed back into the past where the eponymous Loopers kill them, thus sidestepping the issue of 2074 nanite technology that makes killing people and disposing of bodies VERY difficult. Also, by 2044, one in ten people have the TK gene, allowing them to levitate coins for a few seconds. And while it appears that weapons have gone backwards, as Loopers are only issued blunderbusses instead of something more practical, there's a good reason for that: they are extremely practical for the range they're using them at, virtually guaranteeing a kill per trigger pull, while being almost useless in any other situation. That way, the criminals running the scheme aren't arming a bunch of people with weapons that can be used against them.

RoboCop is frequently set in the "near future", which managed to accurately predict the state of Detroit several years later, as well as crappy gas mileage for cars, CDs being the norm, and sensationalistic news.
In the 2014 version, which is set in the 2040s but filmed in 2013, cars don't seem to have changed all that much in 30 years and except for more advanced phones, super-advanced robotic arms, and robots being used in a military capacity, there's not much to indicate this is the future. Cars look very much the same as they did in 2013, and the same goes for guns.

The Animorphs series started off presumably taking place in the "present day" relative to publication and eventually drifted into the recent past, such that the final book's Flash Forward to a few years later takes place in 2002, just one year after the book's publication date of May 2001. It actually describes the world of 2002 far better than it has any right to, noting that the reveal that aliens exist has led to an increase in terrorism, especially religiously motivated terrorism.
Earlier in the series, however, a Bad Future episode has the World Trade Center as the only piece of the New York City skyline still standing.

Plastic Memories takes place in an undefined point in the future. Androids called "Giftia" are common place and technology is more advanced, yet their world otherwise looks like 2010s Japan. Zack is shown playing what is essentially a technologically advanced Game Boy so it's likely not too far in the future (as a kid playing a 30 year old console is more common than playing a 60 year old one).

The English dub to the 1960s anime Gigantor has it set in the year 2000. The original Japanese version is set shortly after World War 2. This was probably made to justify the giant robot, however the fashion and technology levels (such as the TVs) makes it look like a Retro Universe. The 2004 remake keeps it set in its original time period.

The original Command & Conquer game's non-Secret History backstory begins in late 1995 (the year it was released), and subsequent games are generally set Twenty Minutes Into The Future. The canonical dates are 1999-2002 for Tiberian Dawn, late 2030 for Tiberian Sun, 2031-32 for Firestorm, 2047-49 for Tiberium Wars and 2077 for Tiberian Twilight.

Interstellar takes place far enough into the future for there to be the launch of an interstellar mission, yet close enough to the present for farms and pick-up trucks to look twentieth-century.

Implicit in the 2010 The A-Team, where the "crime they didn't commit" takes place during the supposed final US withdrawal from Iraq and the UCAVs that attack the team's plane are namechecked as Reapers, which don't as of Real Life mid-2010 have support for air-to-air missiles or cannon yet.

Pokémon games have all look like they have been 20 minutes into the future, although its not clear if this was intentional (it could just be a technologically advanced universe). The Pokémon-related technologies (TMs, HMs, Pokémon Centers, Poké Balls) all seem to work consistently within the universe, and seem to be extensions of normal technology. Robotics and genetic engineering are well advanced beyond the real world, but within the realm of reason...Until you get to the apricorns, which just confuses everything. And never ask Bill about that time he turned himself into a Pokémon. This trope seems to be played fully straight as of Gen VI though. Previously Pokedexes were based off the current Nintendo handheld (or the iPod in Gen V) and the communication device was some sort of portable cellphone-esque watch. In Gen VI both your Pokedex and your Holoclip are completely hologram based, playing off of the system's 3D capabilities.

Futurama:
The show pokes fun at this on occasion, in the fact that it takes place 1000 years later, thus the Couch Gag in the opening title claimed "YOU CAN'T PROVE IT WON'T HAPPEN!". In the first episode, Suicide Booths also had printed on them "since 2008".
Cultural trends seem to repeat themselves exactly 1000 years later, mostly so the writers can make fun of current events and fads. This extends beyond the timeframe the show is set in, as silent holograms are a thing of the past and the Professor is shown to have gone through a disco phase and, earlier, a hippy phase. In the pilot, it is also shown that a medieval society arose at some point while Fry was frozen and given URL's line "I'm going to get 24th-century on his ass," this probably was also offset by 1000 years.

The date is said to be 20XX, but the status quo (minus superpowers) is largely the same as the present day thanks to heavy legislation to regulate Quirk usage and the regression of technology in the strife that preceded it. Subtle reminders of the time period pop up here and there, such as the 2,250 foot tall Bespi Tower in Musutafu and how Post Malone is considered "classical" music. Spider-Man himself is considered an "old-school" character despite being one of the most enduring comic book superheroes in real life.

Code Geass aired in 2006, and is set in the late 2010s in the Alternative Calendar "Ascension Throne Britannia". While its relationship with C.E. is not given officially, it is widely speculated that a.t.b. coincides with C.E. (for example, many events with historical antecedents occur in the same periods in a.t.b. as they did in C.E.) and so one can conclude that this trope applies. On the other hand, it also happens to be set in a full-blown Alternate History. Given where the timeline splits from ours, some have speculated that Code Geass takes place in what would be the 1960s in our timeline.

Frontlines: Fuel of War takes place in the year 2024. The biggest differences are that military robotics are widespread (everything from hand-held flying recon drones to minigun and mortar equipped mini-tanks to hand-held miniature attack helicopters to automated sentry guns); the XM8, or at least a heavily modified version of it, is in widespread service; and that Peak Oil has been reached and passed, and now everyone's scrambling to get something out the door to help people.

Overwatch is explicitly set 60 years in the future at the time of release, placing it at 2076. While there is an abundance of sci-fi tech — there's been a Robot War, experiments with chronological disassociation as a side effect, a colony of genetically modified gorillas on the moon—most of the lore implies that all the really advanced stuff is in the hands of governments and powerful corporations while the average joe has to make do with "merely" ubiquitous hovercars and robotic servant devices.

Near-future military thriller Victoria, which chronicles a potential scenario for the downfall of the United States and its aftermath, begins in 2016 and continues into the 2060s. In general, society changes comparatively little (and even regresses somewhat in many places, due to a collapsing global economy), but there are significant advances in various fields, ranging from drone planes to workable cold fusion. There's also some incipient transhumanism, especially by the "villain" factions.

The TV series (and the film) was set in the near-future of the early to mid 1990s. The TV movies took place in the late 1990s and early 2000s: Emily was 13 in "Dark Horizon" and presumably between 16 and 18 in "The Udara Legacy", as she was still attending high school. The transition from TV series to TV movies involved some unfortunate timeline-tweaking with rather inconsistent aging. For the record, you could smoke in the police station, there were a few gags about non-existent sequels to famous movies (Back to the Future VI, etc.), and by the TV movies they had video-phones... but the cars still looked distinctively Eighties. At the time, they were using the most aerodynamic and "futuristic" looking cars they could get. Also, the computer user interfaces are also distinctively Eighties or "Graphic-DOS" styled, with no notion of CUA-like interfaces anywhere... but Internet has been replaced by something called "Optinet". One of the movies has a computer with a then-futuristic touch screen (running what looks basically like Windows 95).

Max Headroom: The Trope Namer.
The original TV movie was entitled Max Headroom: 20 Minutes into the Future and the phrase was reused in the opening sequence of the resultant TV series (which takes place in a different universe and begins with a shortened remake of the movie). The date the series takes place is never explicitly pinned down, but the teenage character Bryce Lynch's birthdate was given in the movie and series pilot as October 7, 1988.
You can still smoke in public buildings. It's a federal offense to turn your TV off. This being cyberpunk, there is an Internet, though it gets called "The System", and the way it's shown to work is pretty thoroughly gonzo. There are no reality shows. Japan rules the business world. Network news is filmed on camcorders. There is still a Soviet Union, which has colonized part of the Third World.
Also transplantation "body banks" which will pay for fresh corpses, no questions asked.

Wangan Midnight is set in the year 20XX (According to its arcade game adaptation. The manga doesn't explicitly state that). The manga was first published in 1992, and is still being published to this day (it was ended in late 2012 as C1 Runner arc). The year allows for cars that were previously nonexistent to be introduced in later chapters of the manga without forcing the story to advance years at a time. After all, how else can you make a Skyline GT-R R34, which started production in 1999, appear in the manga without making everyone age seven years?
Its Short Story Spiritual Successor, Ginkai no Speed Star, subtly averted this trope.

It's implied that Ender's Game and the Ender's Shadow series take place in Earth's near future; Earth itself is almost unchanged, but military technology is much more advanced. It could be that in a world where aliens have attacked and killed a sizable amount of people, all funding when straight to the military and space travel, causing other technology on Earth to stagnate. The Earth/space tech differences seem to be explained by military secrecy; the huge sci-fi advances described in Ender's Game and Ender in Exile (the ansible, M.D.D., and molecular disruption propulsion) are all kept so secret that only interstellar captains know about the ansible and propulsion, and only the fleet admirals know about the M.D.D. Also explained by having all the fanciest new tech described in the series directly taken from the Formics. The books following Ender's Game explicitly take place 3000 years after the first one, so it's averted there.

The short Magnetic Rose takes place in 2092. It's a plot point that Eva was alive decades ago during the early-to-mid 2000s (with the characters noting they've never met anyone alive during the 2000s). It takes place in space, however not much seems to have changed on Earth. Fashion is similar to the 1990s and much of the technology seems similar, however holograms exist, technology has advanced a fair sum, and space travel has improved.

Catfishing on CatNet does not have a specific date, but happens in a pretty recognisable modern USA with about 25% of the cars on the road being self-driving, robots (that can't argue with the curriculum) teaching sex ed, and an AI.

Generator Rex takes place in a setting where nanites are so advanced that they can easily rewrite a person's DNA. The show also featured a working Space Elevator, flying transports that use anti-gravity to stay in the air, and a cold fusion reactor.

Most entries of the Ultra Series are set in this period, with things like colonization of the Moon or Mars being mentioned often, spaceflight being done regularly by pilots, and ray guns being the weapon of choice against the Monster of the Week, while everything else looks as it was in the years the show was produced in.

Seminal movie example: 2001: A Space Odyssey, which in the titular year had commercial spaceflight and space stations, moon bases, cryogenics, and at least two sentient computers. Oh... and the Cold War, and Pan Am and the Bell System. However, it was critically praised for realism in other things such as not having sound in space, not running the engine unless accelerating, and having flat panel screens. And a 10-minute call from the Moon to the Earth cost less than $2.
The sequel, 2010: The Year We Make Contact, had a major confrontation between the United States and the Soviet Union occurring back on Earth in that year.

The Invader Zim universe contains hovercars, teleporters, and all sorts of futuristic technologies... all while NASA is still relying on Martian rovers, humanity is still completely unaware of any life in the universe, and only about 5% of the vehicles on Earth can fly.

Kingdom Come takes place an indeterminate amount of time in the future of The DCU. This is noticeable less through advanced technology (since there was already plenty of that) and more through the aging of characters.

The web-novel Domina rarely mentions dates, but takes place in a city with easy Bio-Augmentation, trade with several space colonies, and a number of space stations are mentioned. Subverted when it turns out it's actually an Alternate Timeline 2001. Travelers from a distant future arrived in 1970 and started making adjustments, so society and technology advanced faster than they otherwise would have.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is set in 2027. Nanotechnology is in its infancy and instead people use more mechanical cybernetics instead, however this technology still appears very impressive. The most implausible bit is Hengsha, a skyscraper-covered Chinese island expanding upward via a giant platform above its skyscrapers on which new buildings are built, taking "social stratification" to a whole new level. Better get on that ASAP, China.
Even the developers themselves said at one point that that last bit is "not going to happen".
The timeline shown in the tie in Sarif Industries website shows that this is a minor example of an Alternate Universe; the titular prosthetics company was founded in 2007, amongst other examples.

The British 1970s series Time Slip showed several potential versions of the year 1990. Cloning. Melted polar icecaps. Longevity serums. Global computer control. Europe being geologically restructured to maximize efficiency. And computers were still room-size monstrosities with reel-to-reel tapes. And as to the sense of taste in décor, let us just say that it is truly fortunate for our corneas that only one episode has survived in its original color.

X-Men is set in "the not-too-distant future", with its two sequels following after that. Its prequel, Wolverine, is set about 20 years earlier (since Scott Summers is a teenager), placing it sometime between The '60s and The '80s. The climactic scene, set at Three Mile Island, would seem to imply it's set in 1979, if Deadpool slicing one of the cooling towers to pieces with his eye-beams is assumed to be analogous to the real-world event that occurred in that year. The World Trade Center is still standing in the first film, which seems to make the 'future' early 2001. However, "the not too distant future" subtitle gets a bit confusing by the time the third movie happens. Simply because two scenes occur before the opening credits, and they are stated to be "10 years ago" and "20 years ago." It is never specified when exactly those two scenes were supposed to be 10 and 20 years ago from, now or from the not too distant future. (Confused yet?)

The Zero Escape series' present day is 2027—29, with parts set in the far-off future of 2074. A lot of the technology is considered a standard affair by the characters (such as a freezing fire extinguisher and holograms), while others surprise even them, like the extraordinarily life-like robots and the ADAM machine.

The following game Call of Duty: Ghosts is also set in a future time period but not in the same way as Black Ops II (since the setting of the game is a Fallen States of America scenario, where The United States has struggled to remain intact following a devastating Kill Sat attack) so the technology is more reminiscent of a Next Sunday A.D.. The 2014 Call of Duty, Advanced Warfare, embraces the trope even more than Black Ops II, featuring highly equipped Private Military Contractors using Powered Armor exosuits that can scale walls, among other exotic technologies (appropriately set in 2054).

Call of Duty: Black Ops III jumps forward to roughly the time of Advanced Warfare (2065) and we find soldiers with robotic augmentations and Le Parkour enabling "Cyber Rigs", among other things. In this reality, autonomous defense systems have become so sophisticated that they cause a stalemate so national defense has returned to reliance on traditional foot soldier forces, hence the growth in robotic augmentation.

Chrono Trigger. Though it obviously takes place on a non-Earth world, its dinosaurs did die in 65,000,000 B.C., making it clear that it was somewhat Earth-like. In its version of 1999, mankind lives in domes with air fortresses and sentient robots. This one is obviously on purpose, considering that A.D. 1000 corresponds roughly to modern times, and A.D. 600 to medieval times.

A diary entry of Gerald Robotnik's in Sonic X is dated to "20XX". That was fifty years ago, meaning that the anime itself takes place anywhere from the mid 21st century to the mid 22nd century. Despite this, almost everything from the fashion to the cars looks completely at home in the early 2000s. The only major difference seems to mild technological advancements such as robots.

Many novels and short stories (and the film adaptations of them, such as Blade Runner, Total Recall (1990), Minority Report, and A Scanner Darkly) are set just a decade or so in the future. He was much better at entertaining than predicting the near future. It's not uncommon for novels written in the 1960s and '70s that take place in the '80s and '90s to feature flying cars, androids, World Wars, and legalized marijuana.

The sequel Duke Nukem Forever looks like it could be more or less in the present day...but going by the fact that it's set during the run of the 67th President of the United States, that would set it at least in year 2104 up to year 2196. This is barring any previous Presidents leaving office early. Which Number 67 does in a very violent way... Further muddled by the fact that, in what's likely another reference to the game's extremely long development time, everybody at the beginning of Forever refers to the events of 3D as having taken place "twelve years ago", which would place Forever in 2019 or 2020.

Doctor Who has many episodes with this kind of setting.
Note that many of the stories explicitly set in the 1990s and the 21st century aren't really Twenty Minutes into the Future; they're really distant-future stories dated by a writer who didn't realize that the year 2000 really wasn't all that far off. However, "The Invasion" and subsequent UNIT stories were always intended to be set just a few years in the future. This was ignored in "Mawdryn Undead", but by UNIT's final classic-series appearance in "Battlefield", the setting was clearly re-established as the very-near future. The issue of "UNIT dating" (when exactly the UNIT stories take place, since there's a bucketload of contradictory evidence) is a notorious Continuity Snarl, leading to much debate among fans (although this is generational to a degree, it's very rare to meet a fan nowadays who argues that the 1970s UNIT stories were set later than broadcast date who isn't old enough to have watched them when they were first broadcast), has been parodied a number of times in the Expanded Universe and for a while got it's own Wikipedia entry (it also got lampshaded in the books and the New Series episode "The Sontaran Stratagem" by having Sarah Jane and the Doctor respectively say they "used to work for UNIT in the Seventies, or was it the Eighties?").
In "Mawdryn Undead", producer John Nathan-Turner demanded that one of the story's time periods be 1977. This caused Script Editor Eric Saward incredible trauma, because he knew about the UNIT dating situation and, more importantly, he knew the fans knew and would pillory the creative team for the 1977 decision. This is exactly what happened.
The Second Doctor's companion Zoe comes from the 21st century, but few dates are given for her era... until in "The Mind Robber" (aired in 1968), she is familiar with a cartoon character from the year 2000, implying that she's from a few years past that time at most. Or that she's a comics geek, which wouldn't be out of character for her.
"The Tenth Planet" (1966) was set in the futuristic age of 1986, and features the discovery of Earth's twin planet of Mondas, which begins to siphon off Earth's energy. Come 1985, and the show's still running; the story "Attack of the Cybermen" sees the Sixth Doctor heading off the titular attack before it affects the Mondas attack...
All episodes set in the present day from 2005's "Aliens of London" to 2008's "Journey's End", inclusive, take place a year after the airing date. note 2007's "Blink" is a tiny exception to the rule, because the Doctor's only present-day appearance in that episode was after a one-year Time Skip from a linear, subjective viewpoint. This means that "Blink" started in the year it aired but finished at the normal one-year-ahead point. This was due to "Aliens of London" being explicitly set a year after the first episode of the 2005 season. Thanks to the series taking a "gap year" in which only a handful of specials were aired, the series was able to align with present-day by the time the Tenth Doctor handed off to the Eleventh Doctor.
The first decade of the 21st century in Ahistory: An Unauthorised History of the Doctor Who Universe makes interesting reading. The writer takes a deep breath and presents the Cyberpunk near future of the 1990s New Adventures novels and the Present Day setting of the current series as happening at the same time, without further explanation. Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey...
"The Waters of Mars" aired in 2009 and was set 50 years in the future, when humanity has established its first Mars base.
"In the Forest of the Night", broadcast in 2014, included dialogue hinting that it takes place in 2016. As a result, all modern-day Earth episodes featuring companion Clara Oswald that followed (at least up until her departure broadcast in 2015) would have taken place at some point after their broadcast date. However, the spinoff series Class, which is set in the year 2016, explicitly places Clara's last modern-day episode in 2015, which is corroborated by the Doctor Who Expanded Universe.

Call of Duty:
Call of Duty: Black Ops II: Parts of the game are set in the year 2025. The major differences from the present day seen in-game include mass proliferation of combat drone technology, weapons that are prototypes today shown in common use, China having formed a multinational Strategic Defence Coalition that threatens world peace, commercially available VTOL aircraft, and a super-expensive resort city on a mobile, floating island. On the other hand, nightclubs on said island still play Skrillex.
The following game Call of Duty: Ghosts is also set in a future time period but not in the same way as Black Ops II (since the setting of the game is a Fallen States of America scenario, where The United States has struggled to remain intact following a devastating Kill Sat attack) so the technology is more reminiscent of a Next Sunday A.D.. The 2014 Call of Duty, Advanced Warfare, embraces the trope even more than Black Ops II, featuring highly equipped Private Military Contractors using Powered Armor exosuits that can scale walls, among other exotic technologies (appropriately set in 2054).
Call of Duty: Black Ops III jumps forward to roughly the time of Advanced Warfare (2065) and we find soldiers with robotic augmentations and Le Parkour enabling "Cyber Rigs", among other things. In this reality, autonomous defense systems have become so sophisticated that they cause a stalemate so national defense has returned to reliance on traditional foot soldier forces, hence the growth in robotic augmentation.

Journey into Space:
In Journey to the Moon / Operation Luna, the rocket ship Luna lands on The Moon on October 22, 1965. Stephen "Mitch" Mitchell is the first person to walk on its surface. The first moonwalk is broadcast to Earth over the radio.
In The Red Planet, a fleet of nine ships, consisting of the flagship Discovery and eight freighters, bound for Mars is launched from The Moon on April 1, 1971. They arrive at their destination in October. By this time, there is a lunar colony.
In The World in Peril, the Lunar Controller notes that no weapon has been fired in war in the ten years since 1962.
In The Return from Mars, Jet, Lemmy, Doc and Mitch arrive back on Earth in 2026.
In Frozen in Time, the Ares arrives on the Earth Saviour Operation base on Mars on March 9, 2013, which was then five years in the future.

Deus Ex, released in 2000, is set in 2052 and features some impressive — but not too out-there — advances in computer science (artificial intelligence), genetics (engineered mutant species), robotics (commercially used security robots) and, most importantly, nanotechnology. One of the game's plot points is the nanotechnologically augmented, super-powered protagonist who replaces the old cyborg augments. There's also mention of mining operations on the moon.
Deus Ex: Invisible War moves the setting 20 years and into the actually future. Bio-modification (with super-advanced biological nanotech) is commonplace, the nation-state is gone and replaced with competing international interest groups, a Borg-like hivemind of cyborgs controls the black market, and nanotechnology can now build or dismantle large cities in a matter of minutes.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution is set in 2027. Nanotechnology is in its infancy and instead people use more mechanical cybernetics instead, however this technology still appears very impressive. The most implausible bit is Hengsha, a skyscraper-covered Chinese island expanding upward via a giant platform above its skyscrapers on which new buildings are built, taking "social stratification" to a whole new level. Better get on that ASAP, China.
Even the developers themselves said at one point that that last bit is "not going to happen".
The timeline shown in the tie in Sarif Industries website shows that this is a minor example of an Alternate Universe; the titular prosthetics company was founded in 2007, amongst other examples.

Future GPX Cyber Formula, first aired in 1991, takes place in 2015, where CF has replaced Formula One as the premier racing series and racing cars are equipped with AI computer systems. Aside from that, the world itself still looks like as it is in the present time.

Duke Nukem:
Duke Nukem I was released in 1991 and takes place in 1997. Its setting looks somewhat futuristic while also retaining many elements from the late '80s and early '90s.
Duke Nukem II came out in 1993 and its opening shows a very futuristic city with a caption "NEO-L.A.: THE FUTURE". No year is given directly, but in the story, Duke says he defeated Dr. Protonnote the villain in the original game "last year", which means the events in the game take place in 1998.
Duke Nukem 3D is placed in December 2007. It was released in 1996. It's kinda funny (sad) how the sequel was promised to be out in 98...
The sequel Duke Nukem Forever looks like it could be more or less in the present day...but going by the fact that it's set during the run of the 67th President of the United States, that would set it at least in year 2104 up to year 2196. This is barring any previous Presidents leaving office early. Which Number 67 does in a very violent way... Further muddled by the fact that, in what's likely another reference to the game's extremely long development time, everybody at the beginning of Forever refers to the events of 3D as having taken place "twelve years ago", which would place Forever in 2019 or 2020.

Pacificators is a weird sort. We don't know how far in the future it takes place (it's very viable that it takes place centuries in the future), but they suffered a Second Dark Age in which all of their technology knowledge has been lost; ever since, they've been searching for the "advanced" artifacts of the past (our time) and attempting to learn from those. At the moment, their top-line technology is the steam engine and the phone. They've yet to re-discover the light bulb.

House of the Scorpion is set at an indeterminate date, where a country run by drug lords exists between Mexico (known as Aztlan in the book's universe) and the United States, cars can fly, human cloning is commonplace, computer chips are put into horses and people's brains to control them, and illegal immigration on the U.S.-Mexican border flows not just towards the north, but towards the south too.

Jonny Quest. It's still set in the present day, but there is futuristic tech, like robots and personal hovercraft, and prototypes like the Parapower Ray Gun. Overlaps with Zeerust since you can tell by the dated aesthetic, but a lot of the tech featured is still in use or hasn't been made yet, such as the walkie-talkie that basically allows two-way video conferencing.

Five Nights at Freddy's 3 takes place 30 years after the events of the original (it's unclear when that game took place, though it's theorised to be set in 1993, meaning 3 could take place sometime in the 2020's). In a clever way of avoiding an inaccurate depiction of future technology, the player's tools are explicitly from the first game's era. Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator (aka FNAF 6) takes place at some point after that, given the Big Bad of 3 returns to become part of the Big Bad Ensemble in 6. The audio heard in the Insanity Ending is labeled in the game files as HRY223, hinting it specifically takes place in 2023. It also avoids an inaccurate depiction of future technology by way of the player character just starting out in running his own pizzeria, and therefore only able to afford older technology.

Amazing Fantasy:
The date is said to be 20XX, but the status quo (minus superpowers) is largely the same as the present day thanks to heavy legislation to regulate Quirk usage and the regression of technology in the strife that preceded it. Subtle reminders of the time period pop up here and there, such as the 2,250 foot tall Bespi Tower in Musutafu and how Post Malone is considered "classical" music. Spider-Man himself is considered an "old-school" character despite being one of the most enduring comic book superheroes in real life.
This is made more apparent in the Melissa Shield side-story, where hoverboards and smart tables are treated as common appliances despite being decidedly futuristic by our standards.

Deadman Wonderland is set sometime in the 2020s. Considering that most of the series is set in a prison, we don't get to see too much of the outside world. They do seem to have holographic projectors and some advanced robotics, but that's about it in terms of new technology. Tokyo is seemingly recovering from a massive earthquake that occurred ten years earlier, so it is a little crappy but, from what little we see of the world, it is not too different than today.

"Trends": John Harman complains about the technology in 1973 not being far enough in advance of the technology of 1923 (the story was published in 1939).

Battlestar Galactica (2003):
An interestingly related setting. The viewer is initially given no reference frame for when it occurs relative to Earth history, but it fits the pattern of Twenty Minutes into the Future in that it combines highly advanced, futuristic technology with a culture that is almost indistinguishable from the USA of 2005, down to the clothing. As the series progresses, more specific elements of American culture start appearing, and the fleet discovers the post-apocalyptic remains of a planet they believe to be Earth, whose inhabitants also had a culture resembling 2000s America. Eventually, the series is revealed to be occurring somewhere around the year 148,000 B.C.. All this has happened before and will happen again.
The prequel series Caprica, set about 50-60 years prior to the main series, follows the pattern to a degree by dressing the characters in fashions reminiscent of the '40s and '50s.
In addition to similarities in clothing, the series features other modern-day elements, such as British rifles and American HMMW-Vs.

Power Rangers RPM. Exact date unknown, but it's at least 2013 (aired in 2009, plus about a year After the End and a three-year buildup beforehand). According to some sources, it takes place in 2085 - but according to others, it's an Alternate Continuity, and so could be an alternate '09.

Made fun of in South Park episode 31, "Prehistoric Ice Man". The episode was about a man who had been frozen 32 months earlier who was thawed and supposedly had trouble adjusting to the 'future', so Dr. Mephisto locks him in an enclosure in his lab where everything is made to look like a permanent 1996 (the episode aired in '99), and the mid-1990s are spoken of as a strange, bygone era, with extremely specific things from '96 apparently having already been forgotten. ("The ice man is listening to Ace of Base, which was a very popular group during his era. Their primitive drumming soothed his people's tempers.") In fact, in an in-universe example of Reality Is Unrealistic, it's everyone else who has trouble adjusting to him, since none of them can understand what he's saying - even though he's speaking English too - because they assume that since he's an "ice man", he has to be speaking some primitive Neanderthal tongue. (Stan even gives him the name "Gorak.")

Halcyon Park takes place in 2036-38, and while there have been some major advancements, people still drive eco-friendly cars, use personal computers and phones, and police have gunpowder-based firearms. Some technologies have even regressed, whether due to criminalization, resource restrictions, or lack of public trust in major institutions (for example, the return of cash purchases rather than credit).

Uplink, written in 2001 and focusing on Hollywood Hacking in Far-Off Year of 2010 AD, has more than a few issues. For the more technically-oriented gamer, this can lead to either Narm or unintentional hilarity. A 60 GHz processor is quite slow (a tribute to the megahertz race of the moment), and gateway computers with multiple processors are common, while only specialized systems support daughterboards. BBS software still holds a major part in the world, and Inter NIC can be used as a proxy and hacked into with a basic dictionary attack.

The Ace Attorney series typically sets itself over a decade into the future. The first game (released in 2001) takes place in 2016. With the fourth game (2007) there was a seven year leap from 2019 to 2026, and the series' current year as of Spirit of Justice (2016) is 2028. Generally the technology in the early games fitted that of the time of the game's release, however the last few games have begun implementing bits and pieces of casual futuristic technology. This includes holograms, robots with pretty advanced A.I, and computer programs that can replicate investigations. Additional material also seems to suggest that household robots are commercially available.

Strange Days, released in 1995, is set in the last two days of 1999, by which time there's a lively (illegal) trade in headsets which can record and play back a person's experiences including emotions and all sensory data.

In the 1947 short story "Time and Time Again" by H. Beam Piper, the United States and Canada are embroiled in World War III in 1975. Allan traces the origins of the conflict to 1960 with the election of a "good-natured nonentity" as U.S. President. This President proved ineffectual and his poor handling of international relations made the war inevitable.

BattleTanx and its sequel, released in 1999, set in 2001 and 2006 respectively. Tanks in-game are certainly more advanced than in real life; the real-world M1 Abrams is the Jack-of-All-Stats to things such as hovering tanks or tanks with laser cannons.

Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow is set in 2035, 36 years after Dracula was supposedly defeated for good and his castle banished into a solar eclipse. Ironically, the only modern or futuristic things and people in the game are a U.S. Army soldier, in-game items that are never shown graphically, a handgun, and a positron rifle.

Mega Man:
The original Mega Man games were set in the year 200X, later changed to 20XX. The continuation of the series, Mega Man X, was set in 21XX. Posterior series in the franchise, such as Mega Man Zero and Mega Man ZX would be set even further still.
Mega Man Battle Network also takes place in 20XX, but in an explicit Alternate Universe (the point of divergence is a grant going to fund Dr. Light's network technology, rather than Dr. Wily's robots).
The Protomen, a Rock Opera very loosely based on the Mega Man mythology, is similarly set in the year 200X.

In The Time Machine (1960) by H.G. Wells, the time-traveling hero sets off to the future from the start of the 20th century, stopping off at the time of both World Wars. Then he stops again in the year 1966, when World War III'' is starting. When he eventually gets to the far future, he discovers, via an ancient computer archive, that the world of the Eloi and Morlocks emerged in the aftermath of "a great war between the East and West." The 2002 version had him visit 2030 and 2037 instead.

The 2008 novel Neuropath is set in an unmentioned year in the future. 2010 is mentioned as a year gone by, government buildings have fMRI scanners at the entrances, Europe is freezing to death because the Gulf Stream has changed course and Moscow has been reduced to a crumbling wasteland. What the book focuses on is the hunt on a serial killer who mind controls his victims.

Duke Nukem II came out in 1993 and its opening shows a very futuristic city with a caption "NEO-L.A.: THE FUTURE". No year is given directly, but in the story, Duke says he defeated Dr. Protonnote the villain in the original game "last year", which means the events in the game take place in 1998.

In Inception, the only futuristic technology seems to be the technology to enter another person's dreamscape, but that is only used by a small number of people, and used constructively by a very small number of people. We get a brief glimpse of an "opium cave" where people go to have shared dreams in Mombasa — this pretty strongly implies that it's illegal, and if it is, it probably has a fair deal of recreational use in the Western world as well.

Crystalis: October 1, 1997. The END DAY. The Game Boy Color remake didn't specify the date of the end of the world (it was released after 1997, which should be obvious since the system it's on was also released after 1997). Seeing how the remake wasn't received as well as the original, most Crystalis fans probably don't care.
