You Don't Need an Avatar to Have Fun in 3D

If there’s one thing I love more than hovercraft, it’s ground-effect aircraft. Why not have both? Shockingly, this crossover contraption is not from Russia, the motherland of strange transportation solutions to questions only a Soviet bureaucrat could have asked (ekranoplan anyone?), it’s from New Zealand. And you thought they were just good for comedic musical troupes and yeast extract spreads.
