“The ArcaBoard…truly does hover. It…is built from composite materials and contains 36 high-powered electric ducted fans of the type used to fly model jet aeroplanes. The fans are run by a pack of 72 lithium-polymer batteries…That, the manufacturers claim, is sufficient to lift and carry someone weighing 82kg (180lbs)…[The] price: $19,900…”
