While the movie tries very hard to show us some not too distant future, it fails by showing us one anachronism after the other. In some scenes you can see future gadgets like transparent laptops and autonomous cars but in most of the other scenes you see present day stuff although 16 years in the movie time line have passed by.

When Tulsa and Gardner are shopping for clothes you can see a present day shopping center filled with present day items. Tulsa actually plays a song on a Yamaha MX-49 keyboard which is a currently sold model.
The closing credits list Colin Egglesfield, who played Sarah's brother, as "Sarah's bother."
