Dual Divisions gave golfing a pretty heavy dose of geekery with its modded Back to the Future-themed golf cart. Red Deer College commissioned the cart for its 30th annual golf tournament, thereby commissioning it for all its annual golf tournaments.
Dual Divisions fabricated the DeLorean-style front end as well as the side and rear panels out of metal. The cart’s console and Mr. Fusion are made of metal as well. The latter doubles as a cooler and cup holder. On the console are LED-lit arcade buttons connected to an Adafruit Audio FX board, which in turn pushes sound to a pair of Panasonic speakers. The board is loaded with music, quotes and sound effects from the BTTF films. Finally, an Android tablet mounted under the roof displays a virtual version of the time circuit.
The videos below were taken by Lucas Evanochko, who took care of the cart’s electronics:
Skip to about 2:13 in the video below for some of the sound effects.

Suddenly, golfing’s looking a whole lot more fun.
