We already have hoverboards and sneakers with automatic shoelaces, and although flying cars are still in development, we might see them pretty soon. This is no wonder, because today is the 21st of October, 2015, the day when Marty McFly arrived to the future. And to celebrate this event, students from Queen's Univercity of Belfast decided to build an electric DeLorean featured in 'Back to the Future II'.
Students from the School of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science got an opportunity to create a full-featured replica of the DeLorean. You won't be able to fly it or travel back in time, but it has a 27 kWh battery and a 270-horsepower electric motor. The car will be displayed throughout Ireland to popularize STEM careers and draw the public attention to electric-powered transport.
