Fill it with eels?

Man, that thing ain't hardly got no room for no eels.

Cute idea. It looks like origami.

Did anyone already mention eels?

Uh huh. Do you realize how freaking loud these things are? We don't have magical Star Trek fields to float on, we push air through turbines, lots and lots of air. Speaking of which, you think our roads are clean enough to not turn this thing into a 24/7 high speed shrapnel thrower?

They will be after a couple of these pass by.

Tentacles.

Always go with tentacles.

Poor braking distance.

Hack Patooey: That's true. I guess the first few people to have their cars shot-peened and their windows broken and their kids lacerated will just take it in stride. Progress!

So can the technology they use for those Dyson fans be amped up to be used in a hovercraft? Cause that would also be cool.

Fark headlines now apparently being written by Noel Fielding.

"People could lose jobs if such a vehicle is produced. Tire producers and shops, alignment shops, shock absorber producers. There'd be no need for pot hole repairs, so fewer highway workers. Perhaps, they could go even better and build a semi-truck with such capabilities."

Not sure if troll or buggy-whip aficionado.

ProfessorOhki: You... you actually believe there will be these hovercraft just floating around all over the place, all for less than 20K each! Uh huh. Let's see how that goes, shall we? Aberlour 16 at my place in ten years. Loser pays the shot for the other.

You mean putting a fan in the bottom? I thought those things were cool until i saw them in person, then i realized how they worked and that they were pretty lame, especially considering the price tag.The fan is just in the bottom and ducted up.

No, I just think they look neat. I also thought the commenter on the article who's first thoughts when presented with the idea of a cheap hovercraft was "HOVERCRAFT ARE TAKING OUR JOBS" deserved ridicule.
 
2013-01-02 02:11:27 PM  
ProfessorOhki: Fair enough. But there's no "they" looking neat here, it's all just CGI masturbation.

"They" referring to the designs.

Forget hovercraft, what you want is a personal flying hover-jet platform:

Loud? I grant you that.

As for debris, a nice skirt ought to take care of that.

IC Stars: "As for debris, a nice skirt ought to take care of that."

And how will that prevent the wind outside the skirt from kicking up stuff? Never mind that the skirt isn't there against debris in the first place.

A hovercraft just hovers, but the X-Jet is like a flying segue, which is infinitely more cool than a regular segue or a hovercraft.

My mind kept substituting "Lovecraft" for "Hovercraft" in the headline.

Great. The drivers around here are bad enough, and now I have to contend with gleaming alloy air cars shooting towards me, two lanes wide?

Mine is 5' wide. so no, not two lanes

Both useless AND expensive? Where do I sign?
