It's 2013 and the Hoverboard from Back to the Future we've been promised is nowhere to be seen. But at least we can console ourselves with this bit of awesomeness: the DeLorean Hovercraft, as captured by YouTuber Terry Barentsen while filming near the Golden Gate Bridge. (Y'know, John actually told us about it back in August last year - but it's too cool not to refeature it here)

It's made by San Francisco grad student Matthew Riese, who raised $5,500 on Kickstarter to make his dream of the DeLorean Hovercraft a reality. Sadly, Matthew's creation cannot reach 88 mph - the top speed of the hovercraft (which is made with fiberglass - not with an actual DeLoran car chassis) is about 45 mph. No words whether he's managed to install the Flux Capacitor.
