What's better than any Back to the Future tribute DeLorean? This. Because hovercraft.

And thanks to the guys at Deadspin, we can present video of it frolicking in McCovey Cove outside last night's Giants/Rockies game. As Deadspin reports, the DeLorean hovercraft's build was Kickstarter-funded and previously covered by MAKE. The finished product, which you can watch in action below, is fantastic.

        And that's why Americans rule the world! It's called innovation, creativity, freedom and the pursuit of anything you want to do as long as it doesn't hurt anyone else.

        You must not spend much time on Reddit.

      How does he plan to reach 88 knots with a conventional gasoline powered fan like that? Time to Kickstart Mr. Fusion propeller motor.

      He would need water or else the air balloons on the bottom would scratch up on the cement

        It's a Hovercraft, not a balloon, it's a flexible open bottom skirt, the fan at the rear is ******* air into it and the air is circulating under the skirt, so he is actually riding on a cushion of air. it will go over cement just fine, although such a small fragile looking skirt would limit it's ability's quite a bit, compared to say a large military hovercraft. Google it, I am sure you will find a better explanation of how it works than I can give.

      Total self-aggrandizing stunter. Not only is he incapable of retrieving a homer ball from inside there, HE MAKES SURE HE HAS THE DOME LIGHTS ON HIM so everyone can see his face what an ass.

      Reminds me of GTA Vice City game where you could activate a cheat that gave you the delorean but it could only hover around.
