Hoverboards are just a figment of your imagination from movies like Back to the Future and Star Wars, right? Wrong. We’re not talking about those weird wheeled things called hoverboards either. Someone has invented the real thing! Arca Space has invented a real live hoverboard and it is available for pre-order for only $20,000, and that’s without the $4,500 special charging dock so you only have to wait 35 minutes between charges, instead of 6 hours. The board can only hover for a total of 6 minutes, because the way it works, with 36 high powered fans, uses so much juice that it would need batteries that are too heavy in order to work for any meaningful length of time, but it is a start. The device has 272 horsepower, which is more powerful than pretty much any car.
It’s called the ArcaBoard, and the developers are very hopeful that this will be the first development in a line of many that will bring people their very own personal hovering vehicles. “This is truly a revolution in motion,” said Elena Simona Popescu, the public relations manager for the company. The COO of the company, Chris Lang, said that the ArcaBoard is a product designed to set people free and make their dreams come true – especially their dreams of flying.
