    Finally they have arrived
    http://huvrtech.com/ :D
    Rumors have it that it will come in two versions. One European version, and one XXL size version for the USA market adapted to overweight people. The USA model will have a much higher fuel consumption and poor handling particular in corners [​IMG]

    Didn't think you would fall for that.

    Simple physics: it wouldn't work.

    I spent most of my evening last night trying to explain to people that this is a hoax, and you can clearly see the harness under Tony Hawk's (is that his name?) shirt. The physics don't make any sense, and the way the people move it's clear that something is holding them up.

    Would have been nice if it were real though.

    I quite agree. The premise of a hovercraft or anti-gravity sled (Futurama) is a very enticing idea. The first person to make one will be a millionaire before the sun rises again.

    Great material for a hoax.

    Also point out to them that there is the front tire and outrigger of a large wheeled crane on the right hand side of the screen at 3:32.

    Also the guy in the red shirt around 2:15 clearly shows the typical crane boom bounce that occurs when an operator lifts something too fast. ;)

    I'm expecting a behind the scenes video of this to come out shortly. :rolleyes:

    Never mind. These guys show how its done.

    A little anti-US bias showing?

    Those poor dudes, think that it is a 2X4.

    It's closer to a 2X8".:rolleyes:

    People that would buy this would probably buy DVD rewinders.

    Oh. You mean, "buy the hoax". For a minute I thought you meant, "Buy a hoverboard". I was going to get all over you about having no imagination, but then, the coffee was ready. :D

    Anti-US? Don't be weak and feel bullied. Instead, act like a 'real American' and assume he is jealous that we live in the Land-of-Plenty and can afford to be fat and happy. Then assume he can barely afford to feed his family, assume his country cannot fill his healthcare needs and then assure him that a barely-literate American students will soon be sent to his country to help his children learn to read.

    Coffee at 8:30 PM? Do you have an exam in the morning?

    No. I am getting over an illness and took a nap in the afternoon.
