The grand prize is an electric replica of the iconic 1981 DeLorean automobile, a vehicle synonymous with the franchise’s groundbreaking portrayal of time travel.

To further enhance the nostalgic charm, Google invited Christopher Lloyd, the actor who portrayed the eccentric yet brilliant Doc Brown in the “Back to the Future” films, to appear in a recent video. Doc Brown, known for his invention of the Flux Capacitor that enabled time travel in the movies, lent his unique charm and enthusiasm to the announcement of the Gemini API Developer Challenge.

Winners in these categories will receive cash prizes, and the most useful, impactful, and innovative applications will be awarded even more significant monetary rewards. Additionally, a “People’s Choice” award will be determined by public voting.

Interested developers are encouraged to submit their applications by the deadline of August 14th, with the winners announced in October. This initiative showcases Google’s commitment to fostering innovation and creativity among its developer community, while also delivering a unique and exciting experience for fans of the “Back to the Future” franchise.
