The Lego-like ArcaBoard, which went into production last month, can float about 20 inches above the ground.

Too bad it costs $20,000 and offers a range of about a mile.

The answer: nothing nearly as practical as cruising around Hill Valley or fleeing a gang of bullies.

Four turbojets provide a blustery 1,000 horsepower, enough thrust to keep a rider suspended and zipping along.

What It s For

Well, if riding a bike required strapping jet fuel to your back, risking broken bones with every spill, and dedicating a good week to learning how to just get down the street.

To catch a glimpse at the device s more immediate future, it s instructive to look at another product from Zapata s company, the Flyboard Sport.
