How about some kind of directional flux device - you could use it to tell which direction was north wherever you were! Ace...

The earth's field is far too weak for those scooters.Don't you think Engineers would have used it for mag-lev trains instead of going to all that trouble of building special tracks?
If it had a flux capacitor it woul be ace. I have no idea what one of them is, but capacitor sounds better than device.:smoke: The rest of you are just being negative. Now we need to get this thing in the air and moving. We are looking for practical ideas for thrust. Dont give me questions Goddamit, I want answers!! Remember if you're not part of the solution.....

Ok. What about a nice big fan like on them everglade boats with a load of opposing magnets to make it spin, then join it to the joysitck with a series of levers and gears.

I'm sure with a little more enthusiasm we could enhance the techtonic plate creep to induce directional thrust and maybe use some gyrational device to unwind and store the rotational forces the earth seems to have in abundance!!!!!
I have no idea what you're talking about, but i like what you're saying.:smoke: Come join me, matth and mille dreamer on the board. This time next year...
How about dangling a huge wire from orbit, down to earth. You could them use the differential in magnetic current to generate electricity...no ?
No it isn't. On episode 314 I saw Scott use one over a deep swamp. .......................
Fans would never work - too many tarts that would complain about their hair getting messed up.How about putting a roof on it that can have multiple uses - mount for solar cells to provide propulsion via an ion drive out the back and then also as a sun / rain sheild as needed.
No it isn't. On episode 314 I saw Scott use one over a deep swamp. If they can get one that small to carry a plastic puppet over water then I'm sure 20 odd years later we can get one to go down the high street. Think it through man, think it through.
