A Premium Price for a Real Hover Board | tutor2u Business

I'm not sure who will want one of these - except people who like to pay premium prices for products nobody else can afford! However, it's undeniable that you'll be the talk of the school or college if you arrive on one of these!

A US-based aerospace company says it has created a flying platform that lets its rider float above land and water. The aircraft has been dubbed the ArcaBoard.

The price? You'll not get any change out of $20,000. A classic premium price to attract the very early-adopters.

The ArcaBoard has a flight time of up to six minutes and sensors limit the board to a 12.5 mph top speed. To achieve flight, it uses its 36 high power electric ducted fans.

No word on how long it takes to recharge the batteries.

But a cool way to move between lessons - if you can afford the price!
