The Fulton Airphibian

In science fiction and movies, the hover car is designed by repulsion technology. It can overcome most friction forces by its anti-gravity technology which act against traditional vehicles.
The anti-gravity technology can make the car move in a high speed.
Anti-gravity is an idea of creating a place or object that is free from the force of gravity. It differ with the lack of weight under gravity experienced in free fall or orbit, or to balancing the force of gravity with some other force.
Nuclear power is the most efficient powerful and lasting energy in the world. It can produce huge energy to support car running for years. Another advantage is it weightless.
Due to new lighter, stronger materials, the concerns about weight have largely been eliminated and the Hovercar will become popular
In the future, when we have new lighter, stronger materials, the concerns about weight will largely be eliminated and the Hover car will become popular.
The first attempt of such car,in 1917
In 1879, Benz was granted a patent for his first engine.
The first flying car to get a conditional flight certification from the Civil Aviation Authority in 1950.
most successful flying car to date
-Without using tires connect with ground, the power of gasoline may not be enough to make the car float
-How to find and contain the new fuel?
-How can we make sure the car can run in a high speed?
So what we need is to find a proper fuel to support the car.
Although the traditional tries limit the speed of car, they give enough friction to help car stop in a short time.
Problem: How to stop a hover car fast enough and also keep it safe?
How does it work
Anti Gravity

Magnetic levitation

Hovercar will replace traditional car and become the most popular transportation in the world.

Therefore, almost everyone will use hovercar in the future.
Target Market
Steps to implementation
New Energy
Magnetic levitation is a method that an object is suspended with no support other than magnetic fields. The two primary issues are lifting force: providing an upward force sufficient to counteract gravity, and stability: keeping the system from slide or flip into a configuration.
