There is a fantastic story that dates from the turn of the century. Back then aviation pioneer Alberto Santos-Dumont would parade his new fangled Airship by hovering at roof level along the boulevards of Paris.
Then when he’d utterly freaked the passing Parisians out he would tie the ship up and pop into his favourite restaurant for lunch.
Hopefully one day we will all be floating roof level above the streets of cities in our personal airships. Until then though here is a selection of various other modes of transport – most of which are for sale – which are utterly bizarre, but would be huge amounts of fun.
If you are on more of a budget how about this two person Hovercraft? The tech stuff is that glides on a 20 cm cushion of air over water and land at speeds of up to 100 kph. It boasts a 60-horsepower two-cylinder, air-cooled gasoline engine drives its 91 cm 12-bladed fan. And while it is designed for use on water it can also scoot across ice, sand, mud, snow, or grass.Hovercraft
