Hi Creatubbles fans,

Strawbees, one of our “Share with Creatubbles partners,” has just launched a new project on Kickstarter, the Hovercraft!

Check out the project on Kickstarter.

The story behind the Hovercraft:

Strawbees inventor Erik Thorstensson has always been a fan of engineering and technology projects, particularly R/C planes and cars.

One weekend he crashed his drone and wondered what he could do with the undamaged parts. He created the first prototype of the Hovercraft, using cardboard, and brought it to the Strawbees office. Since then, the team has used the Hovercraft every day.

Because Erik loves to design and prototype, he created a Hovercraft kit that encourages every kid (and parent) to experience the design process and create their own spectacular designs! The kit will “never” break because it can easily be restored with materials found in the waste bin.

Just like Erik, everyone else on the team wanted to design their own Hovercraft. So, we thought you might like to design your own as well!

Win your own Hovercraft Kit:
