@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!

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
