Hammacher Schlemmer is no stranger to unexpected gifts, and this $190,000 USD Flying Hovercraft is definitely no exception. You won’t be making any cross-country trips with this, but it is capable of gliding over land as well as water before taking off and soaring in the air at speeds of up to 70 mph using its integrated wings.
Its liquid-cooled, twin-cylinder turbocharged gasoline engine makes 130 hp and drives a 60-inch wood / carbon composite thrust propeller, while a 34-inch lift fan spins at 1,110 rpm to inflate a vinyl-coated nylon skirt to keep it hovering above ground. Controlling the hovercraft can be done using a joystick, which is connected to three vertical rudders and the elevator. More information here.
