It's got the look down. Very soon, it could add sound and smoke, too.
The staying power of the Delorean as a time travel vehicle is undeniable, having shown up in a number of ads and parodies over the years. But the latest twist on the iconic Back to the Future vehicle mashes up time travel with New York City's workhorse, the yellow cab.
Recent times have been good to Back To The Future fans. Nike brought out Marty McFly's awesome MAG shoes (minus auto-lacing, sadly). DeLorean resurrected its iconic car as an all-electric vehicle. Now, Mattel is tackling what's at the top of our BTTF wishlist: the hoverboard.
A Hollywood memorabilia shop is set to auction off one of the original DeLoreans used when filming Back to the Future Part III. Want it? That'll be a cool $600,000.
Marty McFly's "MAG" sneakers are real — sans the power laces, but that's alright, because the kicks still light up, and all proceeds go to the Michael J. Fox Foundation to continue its search for a Parkinson's disease cure. Ever wonder how Nike designed the sneakers? This video explains it all.
We got all excited yesterday when the unveiling of the Nikes from Back to the Future was teased. Now we've got the details, and I've got some bad news: they don't auto-lace.
We've still got about four years until the "future" of Back to the Future Part II arrives, and we still don't seem all that much closer to hoverboards or flying cars. But it looks like Nike may deliver on one prediction: Marty McFly's famous self-lacing hightops.
When one speaks of Back to the Future footwear, they generally mean the auto-lacing Nike hightops from the future that we're still waiting to really become a reality. But these Nike 6.0 DeLorean Dunks go in the other direction: a bit more simple and inspired by the time machine itself.
If your computer locks up and you want to reset it to an earlier backup, you're going to need a time machine, and what better time machine is there than Doc's DeLorean from Back To The Future?
Sure, Doc Brown said that "where we're going, we don't need roads," but he meant because cars can fly in the future, right? Not because he was planning on outfitting his time machine with monster truck wheels, allowing it to do some serious off roading?
