@Garcia: By the way, maybe Adam Carson could help you. After all, he is our official "Aeroengineer" ;-)

But his hobby is designing submarines (it's a crazy mixed-up world LOL)

Please, take loads of pictures of videos of the "inaugural flight" if you finally do that: this would be worthy enough. LOL

@kfield: Only if you are prepared to sign a waiver of liability, indemnification, and medical release!

Consider it done -- now all we have to do is find the biggest, baddest, money-no-object gas-powered leafe blower out there....

@kfield: I did an article on an "alleged" hovercraft skateboard a few years back. I say alleged because after interviewing some aerospace guys I was skeptical that you could control the device under ground turbulence conditions.

Hi Max:
I did an article on an "alleged" hovercraft skateboard a few years back. I say alleged because after interviewing some aerospace guys I was skeptical that you could control the device under ground turbulence conditions. We sent a photographer to get a picture of the guy who built it hovering on it (he lived in England, go figure) and when the pictures came back I felt kind of like I worked for the Weekly World News as you could sort of see a faint shadow under the board like he might have been a few inches above the ground, but then again it might have been a smudge on the sidewalk!

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
