Flicks with a pulse on where technology was headed
You can yell, "Beam me up, Scotty!" all you want, the only thing that will happen is you'll elicit a bunch of bemused stares from passersby wondering if you've bonked your head recently. The sad fact is human teleportation devices don't yet exist in 2013, and even if they did, the tremendous lag would make it extraordinarily impractical. Such is the reality of science that it doesn't always mesh with our fantastic visions of fictional futures filled with flying cars and other implausible technologies. In other words, reality sucks compared to what we've grown up watching on television.
Don't worry about where you're going to find Plutonium, the DeLorean Time Machine hard drive runs on good old fashioned electrical power, and we're not talking about lightning bolts either.
Flash Rods came up with the idea and put together what's essentially a replica of the infamous car featured in Back to the Future, only this 1:18 scaled device comes with a 500GB Seagate drive shoved in. This won't fit in your typical 3.5-inch drive bay, but then again, would you really want to hide it? Instead, the DeLorean HDD hooks up via USB (eSATA would have been cooler).
At $250, it's not cheap, but still less expensive than an SSD. And if the DeLorean doesn't kick-start your engine, there's plenty of other custom hard drives to choose from, including a 2010 Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and Audi R8, to name just a few.
