Hover Technology

I have an idea for Hover Tech./Hover board. See if you used sound at a high enough decibel, but at a frequency humans and animals couldn't hear, it could work. Because sound is also a force, it can move things. Anyone agree or have some input?

Harry Potter flying broom idea. Would it work? Answered

               Ok, so in the past few months I've came up with an idea for a maglev-esque flying broom design after re-watching Harry Potter. It would hover over a magnetic track using two electromagnets- one in the handle and one hidden in the broom straw. The power of the magnets could be controlled via a control panel/joystick on the handle of the broom, letting the rider control the height of the broom. I'm not sure how the speed would work, but if I understand magnetic propulsion right, it should move forward by itself. Is there any way i could get it to where the rider could control the speed? And also, I'm assuming this will cost way more than I can afford, so at the moment it is all hypothetical.

Hover Over Title Bug in steps

So i was browsing the health by design, specifically the one about the grill smoker thing and I noticed that when I hovered over a step it was giving me some strange feedback. Instead of the step title and a portion of the content it said "false false 0 Internet Explorer ..." So I think there's a problem with the javascript or the php backend

I want to know if it is possible for one or two ducted fans to lift a person off of the ground? Answered

I know it's a crazy and outlandish thought, but I've always wondered if it's possible. I know the Mythbusters tried it with the plans from Futurehorizons.net and failed but Is there a way to fix the problems and make the 'fan-pack' work? Maybe not even in a 'fan-pack' but maybe more of a VTOL type vehicle, but not so complex as the Moller SkyCar. Like the Mythbusters explored, I would want something that the 'average Joe' could create. If anybody has any ideas or even guidance on how to do it, such as hp of an engine, rpm's what to make the ducts and propellors from etc, then I would really love to know what everybody thinks. Thanks, Jack

CSS problems? a: hover broken on viewing multiline ible titles

When you go to a page that has 'ibles listed in the block formation (the 4x3 formation) then the orange links under each ible that become underlined when you hover on them, when you hover the last line of the ible title doesn't turn underlined. An example of this is on my user profile page: https://www.instructables.com/member/Jayefuu/?show=INSTRUCTABLES&sort;=VIEWS&limit;=12 I don't see this bug when I visit a page with ibles shown in the 5x4 format, like this page: https://www.instructables.com/tag/type-id/ I'm using Windows XP w/ SP3 w/ 1024x600 res and Firefox 3.5.6

How do I fix a hand-top hover-copter?

I have one of those hand-top hover-copters that sense water and hover over your hand when hydrated. My friends' got confused with what and how sensitively to sense and just kept going up and flew away. Mine looks like there's something wrong with the propeller and keeps on leaning to one side. It maybe a weight problem because it's an astronaut with propellers. We think the reason is it reacts to any remote to turn it off and gets corrupted or we just drop it and wait for it to stop hopping and turns off. How do we fix something like that?

Is it possible to make a plane that can hover (helicopter style) in the air using three downward facing turbofans? Answered

Would it be possible to make a plane that can hover (helicopter style) in the air using three turbo fans or turboprops (two big ones on the sides to lift the aircraft and one on the back to steer) I was just wondering if that would be possible, not that i even have the tools to try it out. I just have a hobby of speculating about these things. If it would really be tried in the near future, it would be a great alternative to an attack helicopter! See this link for a good example how it would be like: http://cnc.wikia.com/wiki/ORCA_Assault_Craft . Please do not take this question to seriously, I am just an ordinary knexer and so i'm not going to do anything with this. But I was just wondering...

Problems with new site and iPad!

The new web page format includes many dropdown boxes that do not work with the ipad. The ipad does not support a "hover" event so when you to select a dropdown item it doesn't work. Did not have this problem with previous website. I know that there is a limited app for the iphone but it does not appear appropriate for the ipad.  This makes it virtually impossible to navigate instructables on the ipad.

Real-life Back to the Future 2 hoverboard

French artist Nils Guadagnin has built his very own hoverboard based on the hoverboards in Back to the Future II. It's pink, it's a board, and it actually does hover when placed on its platform. Integrated into the board and the plinth is an electromagnetic system which levitates the board. A laser system stabilises the object in the air. The board is hovering with the help of two CLM-1+ levitation modules made by Crealev. Hoverboard Project via geekologie

Uploaded picture thumbnail size: Microscopic!

Hi, first off, I am aware that I can hover the mouse over the picture to see it bigger. Would it wreck your servers to make the thumbnails bigger? I am doing an 'able right now that has over a hundred pictures. It is so frustrating to work with these tiny thumbnails! Even if I can see the bigger picture by hovering. There is a lag, and it's still confusing. I don't even think I can write this instructable like this.

Build a fish that swims in the air without any manual control? Answered

Hey there, My first post. While walking by the toy store, I saw that they had a giant dolphin(filled with air) that was swimming around in air just above the head..... so funny..a big fish swimming freely..giving you the impression that you are under water.. I could not even see if someone was controlling the motion...seemed to me that its 'altitude' and 'path' was kind of pre set and it would continue to hover until its battery ran out or something. Is there a way to build this? like fill up a ballon (shaped like dolphin) with air, and program it with some kind of bult in controller that makes it hover...? Thank you

Annoying design flaw in new editor

In the new editor, the file names of images never become visible, not when you click on them, not when you hover over them. When your images are similar to each other, that makes it very hard to get them in the right order (see the screen shot - that is not the order I took them in, nor the order they were uploaded). Please, can we have the file names back?
