Back to the Future!

Movies sometimes mention their own title at some point in their dialogue, but it’s not often they do it as many times as they did in the Back to the Future trilogy. I Love Fun compiled this edit that shows just how many times Doc Brown and Marty uttered the phrase.

Thanks in large part to Back to the Future, the DeLorean DMC-12 is one of the most iconic cars of all time. While we probably will never drive one, it’s good to know that it’s possible to build a tiny version with enough skill and time. Ank Creative shows off the modelmaking process for one incredibly detailed mini DeLorean.

Doc and Marty would have never let their ride fall into the kind of disrepair that this DeLorean DMC-12 model was in at the start of this video.

A few years back, Lexus created a working prototype of a Hoverboard. But it required a special supercooled track. Hacksmith Industries worked with engineer Jimmy Zhou to create a version that uses rapidly-spinning magnets. Plus it looks like the board that Marty McFly rode in the movie.
