Back to the Future II promised us a lot of things. Then we waited years and years only to assume we’d never see a hoverboard, a pair of self-lacing sneakers, or the Cubs win the World Series. Well, late last year we saw a working hoverboard, and now we’re going to get those Nike Air MAGs complete with Power Laces (no word on the Cubs). Tinker Hatfield, a Nike designer, confirmed recently that the company is working to have the shoes out this year, and if everything works out with a few battery issues, they’ll be complete with laces that tighten with the push of a button. You’re on deck, Cubbies.

Retro-Video-Game-Puzzle-IF2

We’ve long been obsessed with Things Organized Neatly, the Tumblr, Instagram account, and book that displays collections of items arranged in pleasing ways. It’s the reason we’re hard at work on this puzzle. When finished, the puzzle depicts a collection of retro video games and gaming systems aligned ever so perfectly. Each is made in the USA by the New York Puzzle Company and features original photography from artist Jim Golden. At 1000 pieces, it will put you to work for some time, but when you complete it you can use some puzzle glue and frame it on your wall. Out of chaos comes order, right?
