This man might have won the unofficial award for 'Best Dad' having built a fully-functioning hovercraft for his kids.

That's right, the Hovercraft 2.0 was created by YouTube user Papa and built using nothing but polystyrene insulation board, a very powerful hand vacuum and a lot of tape.

It works a dream and thanks to the rather handy attachment of a rope the hovercraft stays safely anchored to Dad letting the kid whizz around to his hearts content.

It's hard not to feel a pang of jealousy knowing that we never grew up with our own hovercraft, but thankfully that's what a mid-life crisis is for.
