Picture of Paper ground effect vehicle #1 (like a hover-craft)
A ground effect vehicle is like a hovercraft, but instead of having a fan blowing air down, air is forced underneath by a slope, wings or other such system.
This is version 1 of the craft. At the time of writing there are 2 versions.

This vehicle can travel upwards of 5m on a smooth surface(like vinyl), and once moving can transition onto slightly rougher ones (like carpet).

Step 1: Materials and requirements

Picture of Materials and requirements
The materials are easy:
1) Paper, A4
2) Scissors

The requirements are a little harder:
1) Smooth floor (eg vinyl, cork etc) to "fly" it on
2) you!

I wouldn't know, but I guess it is just a sliver of paper from a previous experiment.
how do you throw it? i cant manage!

You don't 'throw' it, more you push it along the ground.
If you had a flat piece of paper on the ground, how would you move it?
i would blow it! It makes an awesome sound!
