What adult or kid who's seen any of the Back to the Future movies hasn't lusted after a real DeLorean, let alone one that could actually hover. While a real hovering DeLorean might still not be available until some time in the future, Kids Logic of Hong Kong has created a scale model replica that may be the next best thing.
The 22 cm (8.6 in) long, 1/20th scale hovering DeLorean sits on a base that creates a magnetic field to allow the car to float in mid-air. The base is powered by either 16 AA batteries or an included AC/DC adaptor.

The model features a nickel-chrome plating effect that mimics the brushed stainless-steel finish of the real DeLorean and blue LED lights illuminate the mirror-topped base. It will also come with LED "flame" parts, a mini version of the Grays Sports Almanac, and mini replicas of the pink hover board and yellow hover board featured in Back to the Future II.The company is in the middle of an IndieGoGo campaign with a goal of raising US $30,000. Pledges for the DeLorean Time Machine package cost US$195 excluding shipping. If all goes as planned, the company expects to begin shipping the hovering DeLorean collectible in Q3 2016.
