The Back To The Future/Atomic Bomb/Gray Aliens Conspiracy Theory.

Jesus, do I get frothy round a conspiracy theory. I just can’t help myself.

Let’s get something clear here, I’m not a conspiracy nut, but I’m nuts for conspiracy theories, there’s a huge difference. The thought, imagination, attention to detail and flat-out commitment given to some of these suspicions are to be applauded. I’m all for alternative thinking, it’s what keeps life interesting.

There are six parts to this independent documentary, which you can watch right here as you adjust your TV antenna on top of your tin foil hat while you drink your non-aspartame beverage.

I flat out love this, from the stern, super serious narration to the orchestral rendition of Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters, sinisterly playing in the background, not to mention the desperate grasping of straws. Simply put the 1985 sci-fi classic Back To The Future is nothing more than a Hollywood driven subliminal message, detailing the link between the Atomic bomb, the advent of Grey aliens on earth, possible Stargates, time travel and Christopher Lloyd. To give away any more detail would simply spoil your enjoyment.

Hoverboards May Be On Their Way.

The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC), recently posted a video on the Internet which went viral within a few hours. Why did it cause so much excitement? Quantum Levitation.

That phrase just sounds so sciencey, it conjures up images of middle aged men with bad hairstyles in safety goggles and white lab coats. In a nutshell Quantum Levitation occurs when a superconductor is locked in a magnetic field. We’ll skip the whole mind melting explanation and leave that to the experts in the video, but the reason this excites us and a few million other people is that products could adopt this simple technology in the future which means THIS could  become a reality.

Science, why you so slow?

 

Self Lacing Back To The Future Footwear Could Be A Reality.

Holy Schnikes! Remember that bit in Back To The Future II where Marty McFly tries on some futuristic trainers and they lace up themselves? No? Oh for Christ’s sake!.

Ok, well it turns out Nike may be ready to launch the world’s first ever range of footwear with ‘power laces‘. It’s already common knowledge that Nike patented the technology last year but many people were sceptical the shoes would ever see the light of day. Until that is Back To The Future producer Frank Marshall recently tweeted this:

“Something big is coming soon. Can’t say anything yet. No one should know too much about their own destiny. #BTTF”

Followed by:

“Going to need a lot of hover boards.”

This cryptic announcement coupled with a batch of limited edition invitations sent out by Nike to only a select few for their new product the Nike Air Mag sneaker, (the exact name of the shoes featured in the film), suggests that we are only a few years away from hoover boards, (yet still no jet packs). Marshall also posted this promo video entitled McFly’s Closet, which has sent the online fanboys into a dribbling tizzy.

Great Scott!

Which reminds us. This special social network/movie tribute themed t-shirt that our good friends have over at the DOFC, (Dept Of Fashion Corrections), is a nice little tie in with all things Back To The Future. Click on the pic for more details.

Beghad! Better Than A Life Preserver.

If you have a spare $50,000 down the back of your couch then you might be interested in investing in the self-sizing, self-drying  jacket of the future, as featured in the 1989 Robert Zemeckis film Back To The Future Part II. Only one of these were made and was worn by Michael J Fox’s character Marty McFly in 2015, (not so far away now), cables were fitted to the inside of the jacket and operated by a special effects crew to get it to re-size and dry during filming. The jacket is currently available for sale at the website Profiles In History as part of a Hollywood Memorabilia auction.
