Mr. Fusion Car Charger Looks Cool, But I Wanted Power Laces

 

Live out your childhood dreams of living in the far away tomorrow of 2015 with this Back to the Future Part II Mr. Fusion for charging you phone.

The charger easily slips into your car’s cup holder and has dual 2 amp USB charging ports and give you an extra 12v cigarette lighter. It’s powered with a 12v plug, so no need to throw your trash in it. Of course the trade-off is that it won’t be able to provide enough energy to power your flux capacitor, so for now, you’re still suck using good ol’ uranium to power your time-travel adventures.

Available from ThinkGeek for $40.  I mean I’d rather have Nike’s self lacing sneakers, but they only released a few hundred pairs, so they go for about $20,000 a pair. I guess I’ll just stick to my car charger for now.

This DeLorean Actually Floats

1_20-Magnetic-Floating-DeLorean-Time-Machine-by-Kids-Logic-Featured-image-672x372

Back To The Future day is now forever behind us, but the movie’s spirit and magic lives on. So we wouldn’t be surprised to see this 1/20 scale floating DeLorean sell out rather quickly. It’s an officially licensed collectible that uses an array of magnets to float above its base.

– Officially Licensed by Universal Studios
– Delorean Time Machine Back to the Future Part II.
– Scale: 1/20
– Length: about 22cm
– Levitating Time Machine with Magnetic Floating Base
– Openable doors and movable wheels
– Changeable wheels (two sets) for normal scene and flying scene.
– Flame effect parts included
– 2 Bases: Magnetic Floating Base and Display Base
– More than 10 LED light-up features
– Magnetic Floating Base comes with light up function

Of course, whenever you see the word ‘collectible’, you know you have to prepare for a hefty price tag. This toy is no exception, since you’ll have to pony up $195 as a pre-order to get yours. And then wait until Q2 2016 to actually get it.

Back To The Future LEGO Set To Be Available Mid-2013

Back in April of this year, we wrote about this very Back To The Future LEGO set, explaining that it was in the pipeline, having successfully garnered 10,000 at LEGO’s design site Cuusoo. The only thing that might have stopped the project at the time was failing to secure the rights to the BTTF franchise, but we’re happy to say this is now done and the set is going to be released mid-2013. We’re not sure about the price nor do we have any details about how many pieces it’s made up of, but we’re happy its been greenlit. Simply getting 10,000 votes for a project doesn’t guarantee the idea will be made as it has to go through several review steps. For more on what that means, hit the jump for an informative video from LEGO.

World’s Awesomest Mom Mods Her Kid’s Push Car into a Time-Traveling DeLorean

Kid DeLorean

When I was a kid, I wished everyday that I’d get a DeLorean for my birthday. Instead, I got a Barbie doll, but I was still happy anyway. Regardless, I’m still bowling over with envy at little Cooper because he’s going to be riding around in a smashing DeLorean this Halloween, all thanks to his awesome dad mom* named Cory.

Cory probably wanted to make her little boy something extra this Halloween, so why not a DeLorean sort-of replica from Back to the Future? It might not be able to travel back through time, but it has the power to make everyone who sees it (aka. you and me) to go back in time and remember the good old days. And what good old days they were.

Hit the break to check out more awesome pics of Cooper’s modded push car!
