Make A ‘Back To The Future’ Flux Capacitor

Make your own ‘Back To The Future’ flux capacitor. by n1cod3mus via instructables

Since the release of the film back in the 80s I have been obsessed by the film Back To The Future watching the trilogy repeatedly. I watched it at the cinema over and over, I was very lucky that my great uncle was a projectionist so I could just sit in show after show.

So about 10 years back I decided I wanted to build a flux capacitor, but I got stuck back then because I didn’t have the correct skills at that time and I was making a mess of it, so I shelved the project.

I decided to come back to it with my now improved skills and technology, and this time I have something awesome!!

The idea was to create a flux capacitor that was as close to the film as I could get, and at some point I want to put it in a Delorean.
