Cool Stuff: Back To The Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch
This wristwatch from ThinkGeek may not be the most practical of timekeeping devices, but it’s certainly creative nostalgic.
The “flux capacitor” section contains 12 lights. To check the time, you press the button and count the number of lights that flash on. The watch flashes three times to indicate hours, the first digit of the minutes, then the second digit of the minutes.
Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit - so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 - and it repeats). At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date.
But the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch just doesn't tell the time - with a press of the middle button, you can also activate "Time Travel" mode, where the Flux Capacitor will flux and the time circuit will display a random date.
Will you travel to said date if you run 88mph? Actually, we're not sure. If you do, however, manage to do that, please send us a postcard.
