Gotham Golfcart

 

If you dream of feeling like a superhero but don’t think you can afford a real Batmobile, then you are in luck. Draw both gasps of shock and the respecting look and admiration of your fellow golfers on the course when you deftly maneuver water and sand traps in the Gotham Golfcart. Designed off the Tumbler, the Batmobile of the Dark Knight trilogy of 2005 through 2012, it can hit speeds as high as 38 mph. Twin aerodynamic rings fold around your passenger compartment to protect you from any inbound golf balls.

This was made famous back in 2013, and the hovercraft golf cart is the pinnacle of gadgets that inspire envy and awe. This project was a joint effort between Oakley and pro golfer Bubba Watson. This hovercraft golf cart has the power to glide over any course terrain, be it grass, water, and sand, and it can hit speeds up to 45 mph. Hovering up to 9 inches over the ground, it can help preserve the course grass. The minimal noise of the fan design helps you not bother other players, but it can carry you and three other players, plus two golf bags all at once.
