Nike auctions Back to the Future trainers
Replica Air Mags going, going...
Look, we'd prefer a hoverboard, but we understand that some sci-fi buffs out there have always had their eye on the sneakers Michael J Fox wore in Back to the Future II. We can't have a hoverboard, but you can have a pair of Nike Air Mags.
If you win one of 150 auctions on eBay, that is.
Nike is selling 1500 pairs of the future-as-envisaged-in-the-mid-1980s footwear in aid of Parkinson's Disease charities, in honour of Mr Fox who was many years ago struck by that ailment.
They should raise a bob or two: auctions currently running are getting in over $4000 (£2511) a pair and some have exceeded $5000 (£3139).
They come complete with all the right lights and a battery to keep them lit for days. Wear them and you can sneer down on all the other five-year-olds with light-up shoes.
Pop over to Nike's eBay page if you fancy shooting for the shoes .
And if footwear's not your fancy, here are ten more gagdets from the worlds of SF we wish we owned .
Mind you, it being near lunchtime, perhaps this Darth Vader Toaster  would be more useful? ®
