Wild Idea Wednesdays: JetBoatCycle

What does the perfect vehicle look like to you?

To me, it dodges traffic like a motorcycle, soars in the sky, and skips waves like Diddy in a tux.

A Jet-boat-cycle. If that’s not crazy enough — how about this: I think it’s possible. AND – possible to make commercially available for < $100K.

Amphibious seaplanes have been around for a while, so lets assume that making them reasonably functional as boats is as simple as tweaking the skids/hull and adding an engine.

The remaining question is: Can we make a vehicle that is within US FAA light-sport classification (no two-year pilot school necessary) and compactly runs on the road?

Some stanford folks think so.

I think I know what I want for my birthday this year.
