It is almost 2015. It will be the new year nine days and yet, no hover board. The future is not what they promised in our youth. Still there is hope out there. The Air Board is not a hover board but it’s likely as close as you’ll get for a little while.
The Air Board is more like a hover Segway. It hovers off the ground and can travel over all manner of flat terrain. So, concrete sidewalks, asphalt roads, even grass or very shallow water is fine. If you’ve seen Back to the Future then you know that deeper bodies of water will put an end to your joy riding.
This gadget is made out of aluminum and fiberglass. You steer it by shifting your weight (sort of like a hover board!) while controlling the speed and brake with the lever on the steering bar. A little over one gallon of gasoline will get you an hour of use. The top speed of this bad boy is 15 miles per hour. The Air Board will set you back $15,000.
