As you can tell by his tie, this man is running away from his wife. Why? Because he spent US$17,000 on his latest toy instead of buying her a new car. He got it into his head that he wanted the Levitating Hover Scooter.
You’ve gotta have good balance to drive this thing. Steering is done by leaning left or right, or forward or backward, depending on whether you want to speed up or slow down. Top speed is only 15 mph. I hope he has a backup plan since his wife would have no trouble tracking him down and bringing him to heel.
The four-stroke internal combustion engine freak-machine is sold at Hammacher Schlemmer.
