    We've been working on this for a long time and finally got some key things sorted out with the electromagnetics so I couldn't wait to post some pics. Once we figured out the tiedown thing it made everything else fall in to place pretty quickly. I want to thank our friend Brian from Colorado School of Mines for the electrical engineering help and loaning us the gyroscope. He was a big help with the software end of things as well. Ill post more when we clean up the bad bodywork. Enjoy!

    The roads around here are shit but we are working on the height still. I think we can get it down a bit. My buddy doesn't miss many meals so we have to account for that too.

  9. I think steering and brakes may need further development.

    Nice work! Finally someone has perfected the Retro Encabulator device. Are you using all six hydrocoptic marzel vanes and an ambifacient lunar wane shaft to prevent unwanted side fumbling?

    Air ride suspension is taboo on the HAMB.

  13. Ride height can easily be changed by a minor adjustment of the flux capacitor on the Mr. Fusion Home Energy Reactor in this early prototype.

  14. Sorry but you're late to the party, as usual Ford was leading the way............
    Floating on Air: The Ford Mach I Levacar
    “The newest development in wheelless, air-propelled vehicles” was how Ford Motor Company described its Levacar Mach I in 1959. The vehicle slid along on a thin film of compressed air, emitted through three “levapads” underneath the car
