Magnet Powered Hover Cars

by Abby and Summer

Economically and scientifically, magnetism would be a difficult thing to achieve. Along with putting magnets or somehow magnetizing the roads, making magnetized hover cars could be a difficult process. If we were to apply the rules of magnetism to something above the cars, it would be a less costly and more efficient solution. If we were to apply magnetized paint on the road, the cars could both get their source of propulsion and a way to stay in the correct lane. With both a source of power from the top and bottom of the cars, it would be correctly and evenly balanced between the two. The only down side to this is that we would have to stop producing magnetic appliences for our houses and other things that may apply to our lives. The video below shows a basic model of a regular magnet propelled car.
