Amphibious Cars

At work my friend Kyle and I were in one of those wonderful conversations that hop from subject to subject, and eventually we got to talking about amphibious cars. Kudos to Kyle for finding that link.

Apparently, the idea is making a comeback. British company Gibbs is now offering the Aquada, which will do an impressive 100mph on land and 30mph in the water.

Or you can just go the do-it-yourselfer route.

That would be pretty useless here in Colorado. The only water we have is a few puddles that people fill up beyond capicity with their boats that can't even get up to full speed on them.

Then the obvious solution is the airplane car! I'll have to Google that, we'd touched on those too. And jet packs.

You know, an amphibious car is practicall for some places. Forget pulling your boat to the lake! Just drive it there... would save a ton of trouble with trailers, and maybe winterizing won't be as mahor an issue. On the other hand, how would a flying car work? The only thing I could think of would be a helicopter attatchment, because wings would get in the way on the road... don't even go there...
