The picture you see below may look the next top-of-the-line sports car from Ferrari or Bugatti but it is so much more revolutionary than that. What you see is the result of years of research and dedication by Michael Mercier and Chris Jones towards perfecting the hovercraft and bringing it to life with style. You could call them genius or mad but these two fellows are definitely innovators, and they are looking for backers via Indiegogo to make their dream come true.
The most innovative part about their new design isn’t just the sports car look but how it steers. The front “wheels” on this contraption are actually multidirectional fans that provide fine-tuned controls for making sure your future hovercar is going the way you want to go without too much of a struggle.
Even more amazing than that, Mercier-Jones want to sell this brilliant machine for around $20,000 by using already existing manufacturing technologies and methods. Consisting of fiberglass, carbon fiber, aluminum, and marine plywood, this wood by the coolest and cheapest sports “car” you’ve every own.
The concept designs look great and the plans look fairly logical with an amazing market price point to boot; so what’s stopping them? They just need funding from fascinating and generous folks who want to see the future now.
They are looking for a total of $50,000 by August 22nd to build and test numerous prototypes to perfect their plans, and they’re offering rewards from a ride in one of the spectacular sensations to actual owning one of the early models at a discounted price.
