Leave it to Hammacher Schlemmer to come up with a ridiculous product with a ridiculous price tag. For just $17,000, you too can hover just a few inches in the air and up to 15 mph with this insane Levitating Hover Scooter. Runs for about an hour on a tank of gas and can only go on solid ground. To accelerate, you simply lean forward on the handlebars and to brake, you'll need about 20 feet of coasting. To turn, it's sort of like skiing, just lean left or right. I'll pass, thank you, but if you do decide to drop the nearly 20K, please, buy yourself a good helmet, will you? And get your head checked.
