Ok... this is awesome!

i want to make one for cruising in the bike lane

very inspirational

nice work how does the grommet work and how did you know where to put the air holes

Now that's pretty cool. Make one that hovers about 3 feet off the ground, and I'll be impressed. It's about the same principals of Air Hockey.

Mithbusters copy!

it would be cool if you could make it gover higher. that may be impossible,but it would be cool. B-

i like the way how it flies but how high can that go huh.

My son is 70 pounds, so do you think the hoverboard you made in the first video can work on gravel and pavement, without ripping or falling apart, with him standing, and a 200 mph air speed leaf blower?


Thats pretty much as high as you can get it. Any higher and you lose the pocket of air underneath and also there would be no balance. And you have to be on a flat surface. If you go on the street, it will quickly get torn and stuff.

could you put a light/thin plastic type material on top of the pond liner to keep it from riping

that dude is far ouuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut

no word's

sweet how do you steer

where can i buy a "grommet" in usa, and can this go on concrete?

it actually works, I made one, its a but shaky but it works

Flight my Brute

Everybody whose haten stop.This is #$%@ing sweet. My friend Kylub
made one but it could only stay up in the air for 10 seconds.

For part 2 I think if you weigh a lot less it would work or if you add more engines.

If you constructed an engine out of something else it would probably work better. Like, a lighter metal.

Wait, isn't grommet a cartoon dog?

Yah I think so.

If you used aluminum it might work better.

I knew this day would come.

you could leave a lot of extra bag hanging off to make it go higher
