    The video conveniently cuts off when the guy goes to step on the board. This tells me that it cannot support the weight of a person.

    If you look closely you can see it tip wildly as his foot touches it.

    I wouldn't reserve one quite yet.

    they have no plans to ever sell the hovercraft & offer it to the public, so its pretty much useless promotional bullshit.

    in other recent, futuristic news I thought these articles were pretty cool:

    A new self healing plastic can one day repair airplane wings, cars, even your cell phone

    That's great. That looks like PIM's Bill Gross. I would love to know how Ali G/Cohen got a meeting with that guy.
