The future portrayed in BTTF2 was quite spectacular, magical, and spell biding for its time, but how would Marty and the Doc feel if they came to the actual Oct. 21st, 2015?

Based on the desires of intelligent humanoid robots, bulgarian artist Simeon Georgiev has taken NIKE‘s air max 1 and roshe run silhouettes and adapted them for the future. Both sneakers have been reworked to maintain their distinct lines and elements, evoking an additional sense of rigidity.

Romain Jerome DeLorean DNA Watch


Take a look the great luxury limited edition watch by Romain Jerome dedicated to the DeLorean DMC-12 sports car featuring the iconic gull-wing doors and rear-engine. In 1985 Steven Spielberg’s Back to the Future film immortalized the now iconic car that is an enduring symbol of optimistic 1980′s futurism. Today there are about 6,500 DeLorean DMC-12 cars still in the world and you can buy a well-restored DeLorean starting at about $60,000. Each of the 81 pieces in the limited edition watch will have metal from an original DeLorean DMC-12 in the bezel of the watch. The case is in stainless steel measuring 46mm wide. Inside the Romain Jerome DeLorean DNA watch is a Swiss mechanical automatic caliber RJ001-CH movement. Romain Jerome will produce just 81 pieces in the limited edition DeLorean DNA watch collection (as a testament to 1981, the year the car debuted).

”The Coolest Rides In The 80’s” Posters.


Ask anyone born in 1990 or later what a ‘Flux Capacitor’ is, and if they don’t know, they have a few movies to watch.  However, ask anyone born before 1987 what a ‘Flux Capacitor’ is, and if they don’t know, you have every right to kick them in the shins.  This is exactly like how anyone who thinks Knight Rider is a song from Busta Rhymes song, needs a media re-education, and you may not realize the main character in Mad Max is the same guy who directed ‘The Passion Of Christ’, but the car should stand out.  These 3 whips are iconic and unforgettable parts of franchises that defined a period in time, so kudos to Justin Van Genderen for producing such exquisite digital posters to pay homage to these pimped out rides.
