Lawnmower + Boat = Shortcutter

John Hinton of Horsham in West Sussex, England, combined a boat and a lawnmower to make a vehicle he can drive around traffic jams by slipping into a canal.
John’s ‘Shortcutter’, made from a sit-on lawnmower and an old boat, can chug along the roads at a ‘relaxing’ 9kph (6mph), then take to the water at the first sign of a snarl-up.

Of course, with a top speed that could cause more traffic jams than it solves and a propeller that spins wildly behind it on dry land, the four-wheeler is still very much a work in progress.

The downside is that now no one can use the term "shortcutter" for the Name That Weird Invention contest this week. Hinton says his vehicle is a prototype and he will continue to improve it. Link -via Arbroath
