As you know from my other posts, I'm sort of a gizmo guy. After I saw the forum topics about Leaf-blower powered mopeds,motorized go-peds and 10-speed bicycle motors, I thought I should share some more information.
I ride the moped partly because other people DON'T ride mopeds. I chose "To Smash The Status Quo" in the Moped Army's recent survey as the reason for riding.
These links below are ones I've found to contain the most unusual vehicles. many of which, you talented wizards could build from catalog parts. I want to build one of these, and when I'm older and more stable, I will.
And, so, I humbly submit the following links for the Moped Army Corps of Engineers to review.
"........After several years of research and development, we at Future Horizons have developed an operational Hoverboard. Our unit is much bigger and operates much like a high performance hovercraft......."
"...The SpringWalkerTM body amplifier (wearable exo-skeleton) is the first of a whole new breed of vehicles..."
"....Flying Platform prototype concept known as the "Flying Shoes".... a person's natural balancing reflexes would suffice in controlling a small flying machine...."
Last, but not least-- Super cool "W.I.G." (wing in ground effect) crafts. These are sometimes called flying boats or "hydrofoils"
I'll post one or two links to a WIG Craft site below. There are a LOT of homebuilt WIG's (hydrofoils) being built. If you like what you see, do a web search. tons of info out there on this one.
".....The hydrofoil craft (commonly known as winged ships)........"
Hey-- I sincerely hope you find this stuff interesting.
Admittedly, it's a little off topic.
