The year is now 2015, and although we have been patiently awaiting the launch of the hoverboards promised to us in Back to the Future II, this new hair innovation has us thinking we might not be so far from living like Marty McFly after all. Equipped with a touch-screen control, EGO's new hair dryer ($198; looks almost like something that Judy Jetson would have adorning her vanity. The tool allows you to customize the temperature and dryer settings to your specific hair texture, but features more than just a pretty interface---the ceramic and tourmaline used on its interior have been proven to increase shine and impart a smoother finish. EGO's dryer also features conditioning settings to ensure it doesn't pull too much moisture out of damaged or color-treated strands. With another touch-screen dryer by CHI also on the market, we have one question: Can we link our iPhones up via Bluetooth? Replacing the traditional dryer noise with our latest Spotify playlist would really signal that we've reached Zenon-levels of the future.
