Boys And Their Toys: Over Water, Over Land, And Be Fast About It.

MIPTC is going to take a day off from the occasionally mundane word of the law.  But I won't venture too far; at least not far from the world of patents.  Let's look at one company that owns several. 

First, however, I have to admit to something you may already know.  I'm a geek.  Computers fascinate me, but I'm also a diver and a driver.  So, when I saw a website that opens up both possibilities, it intrigued me, and may do the same for you, too. 

How would you like to take a patented car, an RV, a bus and an off-road vehicle, and be able to not only drive them on the road, but also drive them across the water as well?  Cool Amphibious Manufacturers International, LLC has all four, by two - land and water.  The company now plans to mass produce the vehicles, especially the car, called the Hydra Spyder.  The Spyder sells for $155,000, and can be yours with the jet impeller and a fish finder if you want to take a fishing detour on the way home.

The Spyder can travel at 70 mph on land, and 50 mph on water.  An astonishing performance when you consider that one vehicle handles both modes of transportation.  It also gets between 16 to 18 miles per gallon as it zooms across the ground.  Pull one up to your dock.
