Back to the Future II: DIY Auto Adjusting Jacket

by Paul Strauss

Back to the Future day is upon us this week, and we’ve had all manner of fun gadgets and gimmicks pop up to celebrate the 2015 arrival of Marty and Doc in Back to the Future Part II. But between the hoverboards and self-lacing shoes, I totally forgot about the self-adjusting jacket that Marty wore.

Well Instructables contributor push_reset remembered, and proceeded to build her own automatically-adjusting jacket. She and JON-A-TRON built this goofy bit of impractical fashion by using an off-the-shelf costume, and a 3D-printed pulley mechanism, cables and micro gearmotors to pull up the jacket’s sleeves.

The effect isn’t as convincing as it was in the movie, but it’s still fun. Now, all push_reset needs to do is make a self-drying jacket and we’ll be all set.
