English term or phrase: state-of-the-art and back-to-the-future
Packed in a ***state-of-the-art and back-to-the-future*** box.

I know that state-of-the-art means "the highest level of development at a particular time"... I am just not happy with my translations. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Thank you for your suggestion. I thought of pinakabo and makabago. But the English terms have no equivalent in Tagalog... so finally I did not translate those. Thanks for "moderno" Unica. But for me "back-to-the-future" is "extra-modern".
