There are so many tasty gizmos and gadgets in the world for those with the wherewithal to buy them, including personal hovercraft, hoverbikes, and helicopters.
I was watching an old episode of Pawn Stars a few evenings ago. One of the items that really made me sit up was an AirBoard personal hovercraft.
The lady who owned it was hoping to get $15,000 for it. As it turned out, she was being a tad optimistic. I looked it up on the Internet and found that it sells for $14,000 new. This is way outside my price range, but it does look like so much fun.
The problem with the Internet is that it's so easy to get sucked in. Before I knew it, I was drooling over the Hoverbike shown in the video below (relevant footage starts at the two-minute mark).
Wait. There's more. I then ran across a video of... well, something hard to describe. Some folks call it a personal helicopter. I tend to regard it as an interesting way to shuffle off this mortal coil.
I still think that, if I had a choice, I would be tempted by the Aerofex hover scooter.
I can so see myself zipping around our neighborhood on this beauty. My son and his friends would be so jealous. Do any of these vehicles tempt you? Do you know of any ingenious modes of transportation that might tempt me?
