I was reading on Gizmodo about a flying watercraft. It looks like a hovercraft with wings and instead of riding a cushion of air like hovercraft’s do it actually flies above the water at 1.5 meters. However it is still not classified as a flying machine because even though it looks like it is not riding on a cushion of air it really is. It is just a larger cushion.

The inventor is Rudy Heeman, a mechanic from New Zealand who has spent 11 years building the hoverwing. He’s taken it on a test flight across the water and it did end in a crash landing. The vehicle is not complete yet and it will be soon. Once it is complete he is going to take a passenger along for the ride. I think he should do a contest to see who would like to ride with him. I’d love to do it.
