Flux Capacitor

[16 December 2009]

By Aaron Sagers

Because of the achievements of scientist Dr. Emmett Brown, and his revolutionary work within the field of time travel, you too can travel backwards or forward in the time stream to ensure your parents meet and fall in love, check up on your future kids or just get into a gunfight in the Old West. That’s right, you can now have your own personal Flux Capacitor. The full-scale metal Capacitor powers up with a simple switch, and the lighted power source can be adjusted appropriately. You’ll need 1.21 gigawatts to power time travel, but only three AA batteries to power the lights.  It’s not cheap to mess with the space-time continuum, but don’t be a chicken and get one today. Plutonium and DeLorean sold separately. [www.thinkgeek.com]
