#TBT: Bubba’s Hover: “The coolest thing to ever hit the golf course!”

On this #ThrowbackThursday, let’s hover back to Bubba. In 2013, golf pro Bubba Watson chose Neoteric to design and create the world’s first hovercraft golf cart. The viral video, Bubba’s Hover, was an immediate internet sensation - in only two weeks it had nearly 8 million views on YouTube alone - and it had also become a worldwide media phenomenon.

Enjoy a #TBT review of the Neoteric creation the media dubbed "the coolest thing to ever hit the golf course" ...

#TBT: #Firefighters & #FirstResponders – Don’t miss this!

For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s fly back a year to the Neoteric Hovercraft booth at #FDIC 2017 …

Wait a minute – nothing was flying last year. That hovercraft is just … sitting there. That’s one reason it's called 'throwback' - it's a thing of the past.

Yes, that no-fly zone is history. This year you can get off to a flying start at #FDIC2018! All you have to do is visit Neoteric at outdoor booth #19203 to see a rescue hovercraft in action! This is your chance to find out first-hand why your fellow first responders in 50+ nations rely on Neoteric hovercraft – proven to be the safest, fastest vehicle for water, ice, mud, flood and swift water rescues.

And plan to hang out after the flight to board a hovercraft and check it out hands-on. This is a great opportunity for videos and pics!

(We can’t promise that the hovercraft flight you attend will take place over water, mud or ice
… but with this year’s weather, who knows?)

Put this on your priority list and don’t miss the chance to see for yourself how a hovercraft keeps you above the danger – not in it. Then come to Neoteric’s booth #19203 in the outdoor demo lot on South Street during FDIC 2018, April 26-28 In Indianapolis!

#TBT: The Neoteric Hoverlifter – “First of its kind in the world”

It’s #ThrowbackThursday and time for something big!

In 1991, as one of its many special projects, Neoteric custom designed a 5,000 lb. Hoverlifter for placing sand atop a Massachusetts cranberry farm, a grower with #OceanSpray. The Hoverlifter introduced an entirely new hovercraft construction concept utilizing aluminum tubing and fabric.

Watch the Hoverlifter on the news …

A Hoverlifter with an entirely different design and composition was also developed for #Alcoa Aluminum to move half-ton units around on the roof of a 140-acre factory. 

From Hoverlifters, to Hovering Dragons for #Disney World, to #Bubba'sHover, Neoteric has a long history of 'First of its kind in the world' special projects in hovercraft design. Read more ...
