Hovercraft Developed by Pakistani Students [Video]

Here is another interesting video of three 2nd year students from Sir Syed Science College, Tipu Road, Rawalpindi. They have devloped a hovercraft, that can lift 350 KG of weight.

Project is sponsored by Intel, under the name of Intel ISEF Awards. These students are nominated to visit United States to participate in International Science and Engineering Fair in May, where they will be exhibiting their project.

Let’s join Saad Hamid of Sizlopedia, who is with Mohammad Naeem Khan, Zaki Hussain and Mohammad Qasim, to know about their project, its demonstration and the benifits.

By the way, ISEF, Intel International Science and Engineering Fair happens to be the only global science competition for students in grades 9-12. It is a program of Society for Science & the Public to represent the pinnacle of high school science fairs.

This year’s program will include a record number of 1,557 high school students from 51 countries presenting 1,241 projects. Female students comprise 48% of those entered in the competition.

Finalists are selected annually from more than 550 affiliated fairs around the world. Each affiliated fair can send its top two individual projects and one team project to the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair.

  • Very nice review of Hover Craft. Great job Mohammad Naeem Khan, Zaki Hussain and Mohammad Qasim. You guys have done a brilliant job and made Pakistan proud. Good luck with your future guys.

    @ Saad Hamid Great interview, I like your way of asking questions and your confidence. Keep it up!

  • Excellent Job Team!

    i would suggest you to integrate this hovercraft with GPS and use it as guided transportataion such as guided missiles or Drone Misslie (very well known now a days).

    once again good work and best of luck for your future!

    • Haha how integrate with GPS, you must have seen, it still works with the electric cord intact, Yes if can get rid of electric cord by using some storage mechanism, then can easily use gps, good for automatically moving stuff inside a factory etc I think so.

  • That’s Great to see Pakistani Innovative students.. Keep it up Dears..
    Long Live Pakistan!

  • This design has been shown on the popular tv show Mythbusters and they have only exectued the idea and not created it.

  • @Humza Rasul

    i think to execute an idea is not a small thing … hope one day thy will develop something …. (InshAllah)

    @ProPakistani & the developers

    Good work yar … keep it up …

  • The effort of students is appreciated, but Hamza said right, i have also seen that show, and the original design / idea is not of this team.

    The point is when they will go to international competition, people will reject this development. I suggest if they want to proceed with this they should mention that they have actually converted the idea into reality even then they will be appreciated and their dignity will also be maintained.

  • LUsh te Passsshhhh .. Jio meray Laal… great work .. keep it up and very BEST OF LUCK FOR THE FUTURE

  • Their effort is commendable. Those who are are thinking that Hover Craft is something new. Its very old tech. Pak army has hover crafts. Most developed and developing nations do have hover crafts in various military and civilian roles.

    However, I have not heard of Hover Train, so, this may may be a new application of the tech. Allah be with these students.

  • Great Work a lesson for those who wanna break Pakistan….Can see with there naked eyes that our future is bright …… not easy to defeat our next generation …what ever we did in past its passed…….Now be prepared to face our new generation….. .Masha-Allah…..Pakistan Zindabad….

  • Good efforts but not for Pakistan like in the past Government of Pakistan will not take the interest (likr they have only interest to collect charity from the rich countries) We will never see these students after they will go to USA bye bye my great students go and work for America like the students of Dawood Engineering College who made solar energy cells and now Europe and America taking benefit

  • Nice video, thanks for sharing, I could not download this video form above mentioned rapidshare link.

  • First of all i will like to congratulate all those brilliant students who participated and deleloped this hovercraft. Well done boys. This also shows that Pakistani Students are also capable of competing with international students if provided the necessary support and guideline. Finally all the best to you all guys for your exhibition in US and i am quite hopefull you are going to raise Pakistani flage there.

  • although the effort of the team is commendable but its nothing new the purpose of a science competition especially at this scale is to introduce new …….these guys did nothing nw… this is the the problem with pakistani science fairs if u are going to spend this much money do something whats good in making which has already been made…….. given the recources anybody coulddo that…….. im surprised they got selected
