A New Zealand mechanic has created a machine that can be used on land, on water and in the air.

Rudy Heeman took the model of a hovercraft and created a floating machine that could also take to the skies.

The WIG, or Wing in Ground effect vehicle rides like a normal hovercraft but once it reaches a speed of 70km/h, it becomes airborne.
