Hover in the Air with the Vertipod

How fun would it be to hover 5-15 feet in the air and at a speed of up to 40 mph? I think it would be awesome. Perhaps somewhat dangerous, but fun nonetheless.

The Vertipod is a personal ‘hovercraft-like’ contraption, which is steered as the Segway Scooter is; you lean towards the direction you wish to go, and it hovers in that direction.

This awesome vehicle comes as a DIY kit for an over-the-weekend assembly and is priced at $10,000 – still cheaper than the Ferrari Segway. Anyone up for a ride?
