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.

    these retro tech things are cool, BUT i think the cool will wear off pretty fast, when the size is like uber obsolete, hopefully they make so you can interchange hdds easily.

    Hmmm...."Delorean" and "reliability", two words that are not usually found in the same sentence lol. That said though its none the less cool and waaayyyy better looking than the apple time machine imo. (what is with the red/while wheels though?)
