Back Up Data with this Glorious Delorean HDD

This is a 1:18 scale replica of the time machine that captured our hearts in the '80s. Bonus: it's also a fully functioning 500GB hard drive (I'll refrain from making any data back-up time travel jokes but you know you're thinking the same things I am).

The $250 that Flash Rods is asking for the device is a little steep, but the company claims four years of engineering went into making this stainless steel device a reality. When you're that dedicated to making a Delorean HDD happen, you can charge whatever you want.

Complete with moon discs, functional gull wing doors and a hood that opens, you'd be forgiven for forgetting to ask about the HDD inside. All we know is that it's a 500GB Seagate. Let's be honest though, you're not in this for the hard drive, are you?

    I hope it isn't designed to only work with Macs running Time Machine.
