the Hover Creeper

Saw this on Make. I wonder if it's genuinely useful, or just another gimmicky invention.

The Davison team saw that the relatively simple creeper had one obvious flaw - wheels. They were the most expensive part of the creeper; they fell into floor cracks, shifted wildly over bolts and got into the mechanics' way. So, they just took them off.

Now, mechanics hover off the shop floor on a half-inch bed of air.

It was simple. A 14-pound creeper that floated on compressed air bladders.
