ThinkGeek.com –purveyor of things you want and your significant other swears you don’t need– has added another one to your Christmas list: A wristwatch based on Doctor Emmet Brown’s flux capacitor from Back to the Future.
One day, we were all standing on toilets here at ThinkGeek (hanging a whole bunch of clocks), and we all simultaneously fell off and hit our heads on sinks. It was a very strange day, to say the least, but it was also the day we thought of making this Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch. But enough small talk, there’s work to be done. Using a Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch, we’ve got to get you back… to the present!Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. 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.
