Back to the Future DeLorean

While we wait for the hoverboards and self-tying Nikes we were promised, here’s another way to make your 2015 feel a bit more like Marty McFly’s 2015. Japanese toy company Bandai has announced a Back to the Future DeLorean iPhone case.

By that, we don’t mean they’ve just taken a plain old iPhone case and painted on some fancy pictures. No, this is a detailed miniature model with working lights and everything. You’ll have to supply your own flux capacitor if you actually want to send it through time, though.

Watch a video of the Back to the Future DeLorean iPhone case in action after the jump.  Read More »

Back to the Future 2 Concept Art Photos

This is a story for anyone sick of all the recent Back to the Future Part II posts. Unless you’ve been sleeping under a rock, you know that we’re now in the year that Marty McFly goes to as “The Future” in the 1989 sequel. And, of course, lots of things Robert Zemeckis and his team imagined in the film – hoverboards, flying cars, self-tying laces – are not yet real. But did you know those were only the beginning of how deep the film originally went with new technology?

Several pieces of Back to the Future 2 concept art have now been revealed that was created for the film but not actually used. More 2015 technology like a security droid, Robonanny, Compu-vend Kiosk and much more. Check out the Back to the Future 2 concept art below. Read More »

Real Back to the Future II Hoverboard

Is the hoverboard now real? Well, no.

A company called HUVr claims to have made one, however. Its website says “Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who’ve solved an important part of one of science’s mysteries: the key to antigravity.” And, let’s face it, when someone comes up with the key to antigravity the first thing they’ll do with it will probably not be to create a working version of the hoverboard from Back to the Future II.

So what is this company really doing? Spending a lot of cash, for one, as they’ve put together an expensive “commercial” that claims to be for a working hoverboard. They recruited Christopher Lloyd, Tony Hawk, and others to pitch it. Watch below.

Update: Looks like this was probably the product of Funny or Die. A cached version of one crew member’s resume lists a November 2013 shoot for a FoD piece featuring this concept and talent.
