Hailed by The New York Times as a “miniature flying saucer with handlebars, the hover scooter provides an unprecedented experience in personal transportation, levitating inches above the ground and speeding a single rider across level land on a cushion of air. Gentle lift from an engine-powered fan elevates the scooter off the ground, and a stream of air exiting a vent in the back provides light forward thrust. Learning to ride the scooter takes less than five minutes, and no previous skateboarding, surfing, snowboarding, or other experience is required. Easy and intuitive to control, the rider simply leans left or right to perform smooth turns without the need for complex controls. A throttle and clutch mounted on the handlebar allow prec ise control of engine power while skimming along.
Skimming along! Man, that sounds like fun! Can we wear our boater while we do it?
