is it a bike?

it doesn't have any wheels - looks a hoot tho it's not as fast as I'd like. I've driven a hovercraft and they can be a bit wayward - plus no brakes and no sharp turns either:

Well unless it's got a gyro or some kind of active stability control system it'll be a real handful to control. The sideskirts on a hovercraft ensure it has stability but this doesn't have that advantage. It's also inherently less efficient than a hovercraft now I come to think of it. And it's slower too. Unless it can attain a decent altitude, I don't see what benefits it offers over a hovercraft.
