I just saw this on the news report on the TV from one of our MSM news sources (Channel 10 - Melbourne).

It's a hoverpod that floats around 1m from the ground, with potential speeds over 100km/hr.

NASA.mil and other defence departments have already expressed their interests.

Check the link to their website, it has all of the details:
Entecho Hoverpod

It is supposedly meant to be better and more effecient than similar ones that the USA is already using.

Saw the news story too and thought they'll have to make the centre barriers on the highways a lot higher, kerbs too. I don't think the majority of the motorists are capable of safely piloting something that really flies - heck they're not capable of driving motor vehicles as it is. It won't be safe anywhere other than underground in a bunker

It's interesting but they need to come up with the hover board from Back to the future. Not these are driven boards. We need the antigravity types.

It is not actually a glorified Hovercraft at all. Read the website in more detail and you will find that it actually a lifting body. Hence, it produces its own lift without the need for the ground to get a reaction force. However, it does use "ground effect", which is how a Hovercraft flies, to increase its lifting potential. There is also a smaller version of the Hoverpod, called the Mupod which is designed for free flight out of ground effect.
