    Seems like this would be better suited under Weekend social, rather than taking up a whole slot on the front page.

      Have a heart Lanthanide. Where is you sense of science and of fun?
      Pretty remarkable to be able to control such equipmentth given that many free flying trials using jet power have been failures. Just Wow!

    • r0b 1.2

      Yeah not my best work I agree. Let’s just say that it’s been a long week!

    Jeezus. Does this mean I have to perfect the homemade ground to air missile to take out the dumb arse water sprite on top of already having to prerfect the homemade torpedo for the prat on the jetski?

    And, yes Lanth. Bit of a wierd one as posts go.

    If it is a NZ innovation then it could be part of a NZ breaking out into new things not connected with cow’s udders-thread. Personally I think it’s great and will be very watchable at waterside happenings when there is a group or even two that co-ordinate a show. We could follow this story up with one about Fay’s water/land motor car. Which I think he’s getting good orders for overseas.

    But my favourite is still the two-three person hovercraft. That would be nifty.

    Some people at work have been drooling over these for the last year. They saw them when they were offshore somewhere.

    I’d be just thinking about the amount of energy being contained and wondering about the strength of the castings…

    But we really don’t constrain authors much on what they post. I figure it takes all sorts…

    Could becool for disabled folks

    The Greens will ban it.

    The hose really limits it, would get boring pretty quick imho.

  8. Friday fun?
    This could be one of those challenge threads – “If you WANT you LOSE”. I have already lost – don’t want to one buy would like to have a go.
    Try these…
    A note pad that burns notes onto toast
    Convertible bunk beds
    42 Plasma TV and Spa
    LED Shower head
    Automated, expanding Capstan Table
    Light slippers
    Don’t know what it’s called but good for work breaks
    A Gamer Throne
    Last one…
    A novelty pillow

    If I have 100k, I will surely get one. I heard that someone in Queenstown has bought one.

    This is the better one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=im1iNq02Kz0
