A Very Specific List of Things That Are Ruining My Google Alerts

I love Google Alerts. They're a great tool for tracking the mention of different things online. I use them less as a way to learn about breaking news and more as a way to discover how people are talking about the future. But there are all kinds of things that are messing them up. Well, messing them up for me » 5/30/14 4:47pm 5/30/14 4:47pm

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 1,500 and neither you nor I own a pair). But Nike designer Tinker Hatfield says that's about to change—power laces are coming in 2015. The future is here! » 2/15/14 2:00pm 2/15/14 2:00pm

Fast Food Restaurants Were Supposed To Be Completely Automated by Now

In the 1989 movie Back to the Future Part II, the food of 2015 looks incredibly familiar — it's just prepared a bit differently. Toss a miniature Pizza Hut pizza onto a pan, stick it into your Black & Decker Hydrator, tell the machine how you want it cooked, and three seconds later your pizza is ready. The appliance… » 1/14/14 3:42pm 1/14/14 3:42pm

Everything you didn't notice about Back to the Future

Usually, CinemaSins makes a hilarious video pointing out all the goofy errors and everything wrong with a popular movie and we all get a good laugh out of it. But when it comes to a classic like Back to the Future, well, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that masterpiece of cinema! Not Doc Brown's science, not… » 11/14/13 10:20pm 11/14/13 10:20pm

Behold the First Images of the Official Lego Back to the Future Set!

Brick News has obtained photos of the official Lego Back to the Future set, including the minifigs for Marty McFly and Doc Brown. As you can see, it's more elaborated than the version approved by Lego Cuusoo but not as pretty. Not even close. You'll be able to create all the three versions of the car using the pieces… » 6/25/13 6:31pm 6/25/13 6:31pm

BTTF's Grays Sports Almanac iPad Case Only Makes You Rich in Spirit

Trumped only by the time-traveling Delorean itself as the greatest movie plot device of all time, the copy of Grays Sport Almanac that put the events of Back to the Future II into motion can now be yours—as an iPad case. Gone are the pages and pages of sports scores and statistics, not that they'd be any good to you… » 6/24/13 10:47am 6/24/13 10:47am

These Armored Nike Air Mags Were Made for Iron Man

Though the Nike MAGs are already nostalgically beautiful in their own Back to the Future style, this custom Iron Man version of the Nike MAGs transforms the boot into something even more futuristic. Something that Tony Stark would invent. Something that you could imagine as part of Iron Man's armor. Something that I… » 6/06/13 9:00pm 6/06/13 9:00pm

Is This the Closest We'll Ever Get To Seeing a Back to the Future

Everyone wants a hoverboard. Everyone. Don't even try to disagree. But while you can buy a lame-o, non-working Back to the Future-style 'board, it's just not the real thing. Crazy optimists can hold out hope for 2015, but in the meantime, this clever little picture by François Dourlen is probably the best we can do. » 4/27/13 1:30pm 4/27/13 1:30pm
