Show Your Guy You Care With a Levitating Hover Scooter

Hover Scooter


What do you buy for Valentine's Day for the the man who has everything? Why, a Hammacher Schlemmer Levitating Hover Scooter, of course! He'll be the first guy on the block to scare the heck out of the early morning joggers with this unique invention which hovers a few inches off the ground and zips along at speeds up to 15 miles per hour.

Hammacher Schlemmer says it takes less than five minutes for someone to learn how to ride the scooter. The company says the scooter "deftly glides over level, solid ground such as concrete, asphalt, or well-groomed grass."

The New York Times calls the device a "miniature flying saucer with handlebars." This little gem of technology will set you back $16,999.95 and comes in either red, green, blue or yellow. Red, of course, is the preferred color for Valentine's Day. Be sure to get your man a helmet to go with the mini flying saucer.
