Back to the Future II gave us an awesome glimpse of the future where sneakers automatically laced themselves. What the movie left out, however, was that those sneakers would cost you $720 a pair. Oof. But if you’ve got a bit of Lego lying around at home, you can give any shoe self-lacing powers on the cheap.
According to Hollywood, time machines can come in any shape and size. And for the latest episode of Super-Fan Builds, two of the most unusual time machines—the iconic DeLorean from Back to the Future and the hot tub from Hot Tub Time Machine—were merged to create an even better way to relax and let the hours fly by.
Remember how elated you were when Mattel announced it would be releasing a replica of the hoverboard from Back to the Future 2? And then how sad you were when it was priced at $120? Now you can just build one yourself with this handy tutorial and about $50 worth of random supplies.
There’s always some added level of satisfaction when you build something yourself. So instead of spending money on a model of the BTTF DeLorean assembled in an overseas factory, here’s a simple tutorial—courtesy of Dave Hax—that will show you how to build one from scratch using a couple of empty Pepsi cans and other…
Back to the Future is one of the greatest movies of all time. And with the 30th anniversary of the film’s release, all three BTTF movies are getting a re-release on DVD and Blu-Ray. But want to hear something even more exciting? The original film is getting released in theaters as well. [Update: Apparently the ENTIRE…
First things first: Paul Kim's self-designed Lego 1983 Toyota Hilux is not the truck from Back to the Future. But when you build a black '80s Toyota on beefy tires with a rollbar and yellow fog lights, comparisons tend to be made. And given the details in Paul's Lego truck, his would beat Marty's any day of the week.
Unless you turned your daughter's room into a nuclear reactor after she went off to college, you're probably stuck paying the exorbitant market price for plutonium. It's obscene, but the folks at Diamond Select Toys might have a solution. For $400 they'll sell you a Mr. Fusion unit, just like the one used to power the…
The folks at ThinkGeek put so much effort into their April Fool's Day prank products every year that often times they end up turning them into a reality. Remember the Star Wars Tauntan sleeping bag?, that started life as a prank. And of all the wonderful products ThinkGeek pretended to announce on April 1 this 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!
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.

Just as expected, the official Mattel Back to the Future hoverboard made infamous by Marty McFly is now available for pre-order. The hoverboard only costs $120 and actually comes with a hoverboard scaled for 6-inch action figures too. That's a steal in my BTTF-loving book.
When we first saw Mattel's official Back to the Future II hoverboard, the whole world exclaimed: FINALLY! Then we found out it doesn't really hover. Well today, my friends, we're one step closer to a people-lead, hoverboard-inventing revolution.
First, the Back to the Future Nike Mags came out. Now, Mattel has announced that it'll be making the pink hoverboard Marty McFly made infamous in Back to the Future II. My life is complete. Well, almost.
Profiles in History is auctioning off over a 100 Back to the Future props but the one that's got me—and about the entire rest of the world—shaking in my boots is the DeLorean used in BTTF III. It's one of only seven DeLoreans used throughout the entire series.
In Back to the Future, Part II, Marty McFly watches promotional footage for the Biff Tannen Museum in a dystopian 1985. A rare VHS copy of this ad was recently unearthed, so make like a tree and check it out.
