A Hovercraft in Every Garage

That’s the title of Mark Welker’s Kickstarter campaign, and it sounds ambitious indeed.

The product he calls The Wingman™, was born out of his frustration with trying to use his wheelbarrow that always had a flat tire or was awkward to handle with heavy loads.

It seems Mark has already tested some rough prototypes capable of handling over 400lbs as he works towards the final design.

Hovercraft have long been a fascination to geeks of all stripes as an intriguing mode of transportation. However, they’ve never seem to have made it fully into the mainstream. Mark hopes to change all that with the Wingman.
