“If my calculations are correct, when this baby hits 88 miles per hour… you’re gonna see some serious shit.”
It didn’t quite make that speed on the main stage at the hybris Americas Customer Days in Fort Worth, but the audience still witnessed some serious shit (nothing to do with YaaS in this case…). Many of will know what we’re talking about, but some of you might need a little clarification…philistines… In the second part of the 80’s motion picture trilogy named ‘Back to the Future’, the main characters travel through time to year 2015. The exact date: Oct 21st 2015. hybris probably wasn’t the only company to make this an event topic, but what the heck, it’s cool! And no, it’s not a cheesy idea! Just look at the beautiful DeLorean! The hybris labs team would once more like to thank the kind owner of this futuristic car for sponsoring it, because that gave us the opportunity to build this:
Please don’t say you don’t know what this is?! … “Great Scott!”… It’s a Flux Capacitor! You need it to travel through time. The enlightened will notice a slight difference compared to the original. This model, built by Lars with lots of love, shows the hybris ‘y’. Does it work nonetheless you might ask? Well, lets answer that with another photo of something we found in the garage of a hotel we stayed in during an event last month:
We only have one explanation for this: Lars obviously traveled back in time. And we know why! He wants/wanted to prevent the Flux Capacitor from being stolen during the customer days. Yes, you heard right. Some sad, pitiful, cowardly thief really stole Our Flux Capacitor. Unbelievable! So how could/can Lars time travel to thwart this criminal mind’s disgraceful plan without the Flux? Well, what he can do once he can do twice. He simply built another one.. has built… will build… tenses become complicated when you talk about time traveling…
But no such mission without risks! ” Great Scott! Lars could conceivably encounter his future self! The consequences of that could be disastrous! I foresee two possibilities. One, coming face to face with himself 30 days older would put him into shock and he’d simply pass out. Or two, the encounter could create a time paradox, the results of which could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe! Granted, that’s a worse case scenario. The destruction might in fact be very localized, limited to merely our own galaxy.”
But before we might have been probably going to have destroyed our galaxy, everybody was happy.
Watch the hybris Back to the Future story here!
P.S. Just a note to the before mentioned thief. We’d very much appreciate it, if you were so kind to send our Flux Capacitor back to us. We did in fact inform the police, but if we get it back in one piece we will refrain from pressing criminal charges.
