Who needs a car when you could just float over the congestion? Impossible? Sound like an episode from Back to the Future? Exactly.
UMD’s freshman engineering class built some super cool, working hovercrafts. Today, at the Clark School’s Hovercraft Competition, students tested their hovercrafts to see if they could complete the course objectives.
So, will we be seeing hovercrafts zoom up Route 1 soon? Doubtful. For now, you can always dream about hopping onboard one of these beauties the engineering students built.
