does anyone have a idea on how lifters work yet? i am agreed with those that believe it is not a ion wind effect. i believe this technology should be researched and it is my goal to use it as my field of research. i was just hoping someone is already working on it.

i mean imagine, hover boards, and flying cars (no more tires) mobility belts that help elderly walk,m no more fuel sucking cranes, personal elevators......so many uses....

any thoughts?

Yes, the mythbusters test was designed to disprove ion wind theory and it failed, verifying ion wind theory.

i thought others had gotten it to work in a vaccuum? i seem to remember a article about possible propulsion technology for NASA.

No one with any credibility, no.

Perhaps in an "alternate" science source, but not a mainstream one.

Though actually, the technology is not dissimilar from the ion propulsion some spacecraft use now. It also uses ionized gas (often xenon), though.
