How To Make A 'Back To The Future' DeLorean Time Machine Out Of A Pepsi Can

Earlier this summer, we highlighted a video that showed you how to make a Back to the Future Part II hoverboard for just $33, which would be the perfect thing to take with you when you head to Los Angeles for the big 30th anniversary celebration happening in October (at least if you've got $800 lying around for a ticket).

But for those who don't have a need for such a big homemade prop, maybe you'd like to make a nice little creation to set upon your desk that still shows how much you love Back to the Future. YouTube user DaveHax has created a video that shows you how to create a miniature Pepsi can DeLorean time machine model. Looks like a nice little arts and crafts project to pass the time.

Here's the Pepsi can DeLorean time machine tutorial (via Gizmodo):

It should be noted though that this video seems to hail from the United Kingdom. Not only does the narrator's accent give it away, but he says that Pepsi cans are made of steel and not aluminum, making for a stronger material from which to craft your new creation. Though much like the real DeLorean, it's still probably not strong enough to stand up against Biff's 1946 Ford.

However, the problem for any United States residents wanting to craft their own DeLorean model is that Pepsi cans from the US are not made of steel. So if you want to make sure that you can do this the way it was meant to be done, you'll want to get your hands on some steel soda cans. You might lose some of the novelty of using a Pepsi product (prominently featured in the Back to the Future franchise), but that's the price we'll have to pay for recycling a steel soda can into a DeLorean time machine.
