Travel Like The Green Goblin!

Flying cars and jetpacks are still a long way off for commuters, but now you can levitate to the salt mine, for the low, low price of only $16,995! Float away today!

The Levitating Hover Scooter is just what the science fiction writer ordered. Imagine flying down the street, at 15 mph, passing all those lame nerds on their Segways. Who needs two wheels when you're gliding on a cushion of air?

The Hammacher Schlemmer site says that you can learn to ride the device in less than five minutes with no previous skateboarding, surfing or snowboarding experience. While you won't be breaking any speed records, you won't be stuck in traffic ... and you'll surely be a babe magnet.

(Disclaimer: Babe magnet luck may vary.)
