In 2010, San Francisco-based Matthew Riese built a hovercraft from a kit and modified to look like a DeLorean. It was recently spotted flying around the water’s edge near San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge by Terry Barentsen.

Here’s another look at it zipping around, this time at McCovey Cove near AT&T Park:
