Well, read on to learn more about this UFO-like gadget that will earn you more than just a few stares. The all-new one of a kind, Hover Scooter provides a unique experience in transportation levitating inches above the ground and speeding a single rider across level land on a cushion of air.

For added safety, the rider wears an engine kill switch wristband similar to those on water-jet vehicles during operation. The scooter can hover over anything from solid land to sand. Just like the Hover Craft, a four-stroke internal combustion engine that operates for approximately one hour on a full tank of unleaded gasoline powers the hovering scooter.
