This clip is from late last year, but has been buzzing the InterWebs recently. From Russia comes this video of a remote control flying DeLorian "Time Machine" from the "Back to the Future" movies, using a quad-rotor helicopter as its base. Pretty cool stuff, especially when it takes flight and some handy video editing makes it appear as if it vanishes through time.

I don't think the car made it to 88 mph, but who's quibbling? Let's mass-produce this thing!
