Kickstarter has done some amazing things.  It has helped people make movies, release music, and realize dreams.  And in the case of one man…it was able to help him build a real hovering DeLorean.

One Matthew Riese had a dream to build the first ever DeLorean hovercraft.  Thanks to his Kickstarter, he did just that, raising more than $5,600 to finish the project.  Take a look at the details below:

“When it is done, the craft will be able to hover on anything flat (asphalt, sand, water, etc), but it will be mostly driven on the San Francisco Bay. The hovercraft is registered with the DMV in California as a boat (it is not street legal). The top speed should be around 45 mph, which is pretty impressive for a vehicle with no breakes (it’s not touching the ground, remember!). If you have never seen a hovercraft, the basic concept is that a fan pushes air underneath the middle of the craft and a “skirt” (basically a flexible inner-tube around the perimeter of the craft) traps that high-pressure air under the craft, which lifts it off the ground. Some air is escaping under the skirt at all points at all times, so in theory, even the skirt isn’t actually touching the ground/water (in reality the skirt drags on the ground occasionally). A second fan pushes air behind the craft, driving it forward. Rudders behind this thrust fan turn the craft. Just in case you were wondering, the craft will not be able to reach 88 mph and so I won’t be installing a flux capacitor. Of course, if it was a real time machine I wouldn’t be asking you for money, I would be just winning a lot of horse-racing bets!”

So yeah…while it may not be flying or time traveling anywhere anytime soon, you could still see the car tear up the San Francisco bay, all while Matt wears a wetsuit based on Marty McFly’s classic outfit from the first movie!

As for me, I passed out twice just by watching this video…and I know what I want to spend my life savings on…

Ryan Seacrest was just trying to catch a flying beach ball. What he caught was the stage floor. This is why people watch live TV…anything can happen, and when it does, you can’t tape it over again! Let’s see how he feels tomorrow because that looked like it could have hurt! (Is it just my imagination or does it look like his ankle might have gotten caught in the chair?)

WATCH: Ducks Adorably Eat Peas With The Same Terrifying Fervor As Piranhas Eating Meat

I’ve never seen ducks eat peas before, but now that I know, I would never get in their way.

Seriously, I’ve never seen ducks eat peas before, but now that I know, I would never get in their way.

A imgur user named Conniverse has ducks. We’re used to feeding ducks when we were kids, things like bread, etc. and that’s not a great thing. Ducks need nutrition too, and it turns out peas are just the thing. And GOD do they love them. Get out of their way! They’re cute, but holy hell.
