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.
The folks at Loot Crate invited me to put together a “Dream Crate” of my own design, and being a fan of their geeky subscription service I couldn’t resist! After much deliberation I settled on a theme: the 80’s.

Well the image pretty much speaks for itself, I reckon. I suppose you could fix it up to actually run on steam, but that’s way too over-the-top. There is one slight dig at Valve Software, so I hope they don’t suspend my Steam account (I need my Peggle fix to function).

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.

This is not a watch or clock design exactly, just a clock face design that can be applied to a clock or watch. And this face design uses the ten Boos that flew in a circular pattern in a Ghost Castle level in Super Mario World (SNES). Filling in the void is a question block and Mario himself.

Very surprised these aren’t a thing: wrist watches based on wrestling belts. I mean, a watch looks like a tiny belt essentially, so why not? Wrestling belts are also very bling-y, making them perfect for luxury watches (or fake watches that Jabronis can afford). All seems like a no-brainer to me.
