If you thought someone making a time machine out of a DeLorean is awesome then ... you're right. It's pretty awesome. But only a fool would stop there! Sorry, Doc Brown. Your time machine is pretty cool, but can it hover ON WATER?

If you know anything about Back to the Future 2, then you're aware that, despite how cool the hoverboard is, its kryptonite is water. In the real world, though, we can hover over water just fine.

And that's what Matthew Riese has done. He spent more than two years building a hovercraft to look like the DeLorean. People were obviously into it (and with good reason), since he raised more than $5,500 on Kickstarter to make it a reality.

Can it travel in time? Well ... no. Probably not. But it can hover on #$%ing water! Just look at this!
