Despite recent Internet hoaxes, we still have 5 years to achieve all the greatness of the 2015 Back to the Future II world.

But if we’re going to actually live in the Hill Valley of the future, inventors really need to kick it up a gear.

Last week the Associated Press claimed our hovercar was just around the corner. And now Instructables inventor blakeblevin is showing off a neon Nike with self-tying laces.

Shoe-attaching technology has seen little progress since Velcro, and I for one, think it’s high time my sneaks stopped being so lazy and tied themselves. Obviously this means the double-necktie is just around the corner. Wouldn’t hold out much hope for the hoverboard though.
