My Google Alert For 'Hoverboard' Is Officially Ruined

I have Google Alerts for everything. Whenever an article is posted with terms like “flying car,” “time capsule,” and yes, “hoverboard,” I get a notification. But today I can call my Google Alert for “hoverboard” officially worthless. Just take a look at this story from The Irish News.

Back To The Future II Expertly Edited To Show The Real 2015

Video: We all know this by now: the 2015 in Back to the Future II didn’t happen in real life. We failed. But! We can totally make things right by changing the past, as in re-editing Back to the Future II to include things that actually happened in the year 2015. It actually works out quite well, as PistolShrimps shows, instead of a Jaws shark hologram eating Marty, it would be a Jurassic World dinosaur. And instead of Biff being the most powerful buffoon in the world, it would be… Donald Trump.

Fuck Back To The Future Day

Thanks a lot, everyone. You’ve taken a perfectly fun movie reference and turned it into a sinister circle jerk, manned by money-hungry marketers. I loved the Back to the Future trilogy when I was a kid. Now, I just want to strap fake hoverboards to my chest and drown myself in overpriced Pepsi Perfect while I pray for a pair of Nike self-tying shoes and a self-driving Delorean.

As Promised, Nike Finally Reveals BTTF II Air Mag Sneakers With Power Laces

Back in 2011, the Nike Air Mag, the shoes that Marty McFly wore in Back to the Future II, were released to a ravenous fan base. There was only one problem, unlike the shoes seen in the movie, Nike’s Air Mags didn’t have power laces. Nike promised they would come 2015, and today the company delivered.

It’s Back To The Future Day Today, So What Are The Next Future Predictions?

When Doc and Marty travelled forward in time from 1985 and landed the DeLorean on October 21, 2015, they found a world of flying cars, hover boards and 3D holographic technology.

Some of the technologies predicted are now a reality of sorts, but the world of Back to The Future II is not quite what we see around us today. The movie makers didn’t envisage the abundance of smartphones and other technologies that dominate our lives today. So let’s see if the tech experts of today are any better.

All The Things Back To The Future Got Right And Wrong About 2015

It’s Back To The Future Day this week. October 21, 2015 marks the exact day Doc Emmet Brown and Marty McFly exploded into our space-time in Back To The Future: Part II. They warped in above Hill Valley, California at 4:29pm if you want to get really specific.

The film serves as a futurist time capsule of what we (or at least Spielberg) thought the year 2015 would be like. Let’s take a look at what went right and what went wrong.

Hendo 2.0: Tony Hawk Helped Design a New Hoverboard That Actually Hovers

This time last year, we reviewed the Hendo — a real-life hoverboard that actually levitates off the ground (as opposed to whatever this thing is.) The same company’s new and improved model looks and feels more like a skateboard — with help from Tony Hawk. The image above is just an illustration, since the real thing will be revealed later this month. But it looks rad as hell.

Hilarious Animation Imagines Back To The Future In 2015

Everyone knows that the 2015 that Doc and Marty time travelled to in Back to the Future II was so much cooler than our 2015. They had hoverboards and self-lacing sneakers and flying cars and fusion reactors! We don’t have any of that. Instead we have bad fashion taste, global warming, selfies, Internet bullying and boards that people call hoverboards but definitely do not hover.

People who grew up watching Back to the Future: Part II are still waiting on hoverboards, flying cars, and those self-lacing shoes. But there is one product that fans of the film will soon be able to buy: Pepsi Perfect.
