The thread on hoverboards got me remembering my youth and reading copies of Boy’s Life magazine. There was always an ad in there along with the ads for joy buzzers and fake vomit where you could get plans to build your own functioning mini-hovercraft using a vacuum cleaner motor. Thinking my mother would get upset if I tore apart the appliances, I never sent in my $14.95 or however much it was, but I’m sure someone on the planet did. Does anyone remember this? Would it have worked? Did I miss out on being the only 10 year old on the block with a functioning hovercraft to take to school?
