Is wearable tech still a thing? Here is a wristwatch version of the Nike Mag, otherwise known as those self-lacing shoes from Back to the Future Part II. The design cues borrow from the strap and ankle brace.
The replica shoes Nike released in 2011 and 2016 still fetch obscene prices on eBay today, so I felt an alternative/affordable product would be ideal for BTTF fans. 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of the sequel, so hopefully something like this will be offered to celebrate the occasion.
This again? Yes I posted a design 8 years ago, and it got some traction with fans. I’m now sharing this version of the concept because there have been a few close calls in making it an actual product, but one of the biggest hurdles was the cost to manufacture this.

Here is a geeky fragrance bottle design (for a cologne or perfume) based on the plutonium rods from the first Back to the Future film. It features a pump spray and a fancy cargo container case.

This is something NIKE could throw together and sell tomorrow if they really wanted to: a gym bag based on the NIKE container from Back to the Future II, which stored the clothes Marty changed into. Just need the neon green logo and FOOTWEAR emblazoned on a round bag that has clear mesh panels on the sides.
The last BTTF clock design I posted has been the bane of a few DIYers and countless people who want one but are disappointed to learn it’s only a concept. In all likelihood it’s too complex a design to execute, with all the digital displays and built-in calendar to boot.
