When we have dreams about the future, we’re always thinking of flying cars. The skyways being lined with flying vehicles that are hundreds of feet above our heads. Of course, we don’t quite have the technology just yet to make this a reality, but we have baby steps that let us keep dreaming.
While normally the prospect of riding on a levitating piece of machinery is something that is envied, I can’t say the same for this expensive mode of transportation. The Airboard Levitating Scooter is about 6 feet tall, and will zoom around at a unimpressive 15 miles per hour if it’s on asphalt. Steering is done with your weight, although there are handle bars to give you some sort of stability. This is an engine-powered fan that runs off of petrol, and can only run for about an hour. This would be a fun amusement park ride, but to own one for $14,500 seems a bit insane.
