Kehinde Durojaiye, a self-taught inventor, thinks he has the solution to Lagos traffic with a flying jet car that can go on land, water, and air.
Durojaiye, also known by the moniker “Kenny Jet,” describes his ambitious creation as “an aero-amphibious jet car” and told CNN that he has succeeded in two of his three objectives.
“I tested it in the sea and a lot of people were surprised it can move on the land and sea,” he said. “That’s one of those things that amazes people.”
According to Durojaiye, his car can travel at 120 kph on land and at least six knots at sea. He claims to have driven as far as Ibadan (84 miles from Lagos) in it.
In a sea of Toyotas and Hyundais, Durojaiye’s unusually styled flying jet car undoubtedly attracts attention.
The flying jet car is almost complete
The 46-year-old, who has always had a passion for invention, spends a lot of time at his workshop, which is located near to the Lagos lagoon on a former landfill.
Four prototype cars were created by the married father of four using common, discarded materials like wood, plastic, and Styrofoam.
A steering wheel from a keke na pep, an office chair, and a keyboard may all be found within the most recent model of the flying jet car.
He has spent hours refining prototypes of the car, hoping that one day he will make it fly.
“We want the whole world to know it is possible to have a kind of machine that can move on land, on sea and fly and perhaps move under the sea,” he explained. “That’s my ultimate goal.”
