It's not a prank. How do I know? Because I started the idea off. Here is the original thread..
Is it a coincidence that it happened just after the "Wise Guy" thread? Absolutely not. In fact, he inspired the idea. Initially I wanted to try what he had suggested, but figured I just didn't want to buy that much equipment. Thus, I thought of doing a hovercraft. boredom.is.me saw my idea and ran with it himself.
I think that leaf blower is very positive. It shows just how little power you need. Not exactly sure of it's rating, but since it runs off a normal power socket it would be much less than 7kW, and most likely around 1 or 2 kW.
No reason it shouldn't work. The biggest problem I see will simply be the short run time. Good on him, he seems to have more time than me to do it.
