DIY – How to Make a Back-to-the-Future Flux-Capacitor!


The very first movie I watched in America was Back-to-the-future. Oh boy, I didn’t even understand English back then but loved it.

Here’s how to make your own flux-capacitor to show off to your friends.

250 bucks for a flux capacitor? Forget that, I did it for 54 dollars and 79 cents. It has 7 modes and it’s totally freaking awesome!

Very little electronics experience is required, just a little resourceful scavenging.

Thanks to Rook’s Tutorial for initial idea. BTW, that’s a good link to check out if you want a (ridiculously expensive) movie-accurate prop.

    I loved that movie…In fact I’ve seen the full triology. The first one was the best. I love the sequence when he walks out into the past. What was that song that plays in the background?

    “Mr sandman … Bring me a dream … Make her complexion like peaches and cream”

    I think that was how the song goes 🙂

    Those movies were my favorite as a kid – I wanted a hoverboard SO bad!
