Do These Powerlaces Match My Hoverboard?

Hadley Freeman over at The Guardian has declared that Back to the Future is this season’s big fashion trend. Which makes complete sense, right? It’s almost the year 2015 — the very year that Marty visits in the BTTF sequel — so bring on those Nike powerlaces and hoverboard-friendly sneakers! Or not.


Christopher Lloyd Apologises For Lying About Hoverboards

FunnyorDie did a bad thing yesterday. They lied to us about one of the best things ever: hoverboards. You don’t come between geeks and the promise of a floating board from Back To The Future. Now the man who should have known better, Christopher Lloyd — Doc Brown himself — is here to apologise.

Nike Designer Says Marty McFly's Power Laces Are Coming Next Year

If there was one disappointment about Nike’s awesome Back to the Future II Air Mag, it’s that the shoes didn’t have Marty’s power laces (and that they only made 1500 and neither you nor I own a pair).

In the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, the food of 2015 looks incredibly familiar — it’s just prepared a bit differently.

The appliance even slices it for you.


Brilliant Wackos Are Acting Out Back To The Future On Twitter

Look, Marty McFly isn’t coming back until 2015. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some BTTF fun right now! The movie started out on October 25, 1985 and last night, some brilliant wackos marked the anniversary by kicking off a real-time re-enactment — on Twitter.


Meet The Suburban Dad Who Built His Own DeLorean Time Machine

Some people are movie fans. Others are fanatics. And then there’s Lenny Hochteil, the man who built a DeLorean time machine just like the one in Back to the Future. It’s got a flux capacitor, gullwing doors and ground effects. And, yes, he does dress up like Doc Brown when he drives it.
