Hovercraft - air boat vehicle

Hovercraft have impressed everyone since their invention in 1956 by Sir Christopher Cockerell. A hovercraft, or air-cushion vehicle (ACV), uses air to break the bond between itself and the surface it moves over. By eliminating friction, hover craft can glide over any smooth surface, moving directly from land over water, mud, sand, ice, snow etc. Since itís invention, many people have wanted to drive on a hovercraft, to experience itís levitational properties, and some people have even made homemade hovercraft. For rescue purposes, hovercraft are ideal particularly in tidal areas where rising tides can trap swimmers, or low tide expose walkers to the dangers of mud or quicksand, or in colder climates, where ice can crack on frozen lakes.

Hovercraft like amphibious vehicles that show in scientific fiction magazines, the concept of a amphibious vehicle or hover board that mysteriously float over the ground and water using anti gravitational force captures our imagination, and perhaps in future we will all travel on hover boards, until then we will have to put up with conventional transportation.

Building a hovercraft is relatively straight forward, and schools often encourage children to build their own hover crafts as part of a science project.
