From Hovering Santa Sleds to Batman Worthy Hovercrafts

Hovercrafts have been a cool idea for decades, but still haven't quite made it into the mainstream for some reason.

As far back as Back To The Future, many have seen them in movies, and many of us have wondered what it would be like to hover above the surface of water or land and travel at high speeds. There's likely some kind of superhero complex associated with our fascination.

This list outlines a variety of hovercrafts ranging from cutting edge to makeshift. One of the most impressive hovercrafts is the Mercier-Jones Hovercraft, which is designed like a sports car. It's the kind of high performance vehicle that Batman would probably drive.

You can even get personal hovercrafts for recreational use. Stats for 21 Levitating Hovercrafts Trending: Older & Buzzing
