2015 is almost going to end and it’s time to talk about best innovation of this year. Literally or fancifully, this year was the year of Hoverboard. May be you will have a different opinion. But am going with Hoverboard; I love it.
While you are thinking about self- balancing scooters, hoverboard will take you into the next generation.
Recently NBA team owner Mark Cuban announced that he is going to make his own version hoverboard and with the end of 2015, ARCA Space Corporation (A private space company) launched an electric commercial hoverboard named “ArcaBoard” on Dec 24. After Air Strato (launched in 2014) which is known as the most amazing air robot in the world, this is also quite different from other hoverboard.
ArcaBoard- the beginning of a Revolution in motion!
ArcaBoard is a fan- powered rectangle hoverboard that can lift a person off the ground by almost a foot (maximum ground height- 30 cm) with maximum speed 20 km/h for six- minute endurance.
“For the first time since the bicycle, automobile or airplane, the ArcaBoard is a revolutionary breakthrough for transportation. For the first time, every person will be able to fly anytime, anywhere. The world, your world, will change forever.”- ARCA Space website.
You can also see the CEO of ARCA Space ‘Dumitru Popescu’ to take riding of ArcaBoard in the video. After the end of video he says: “I’ve always wanted to create a commercially available product for the masses but the creation of this truly revolutionary product proves that ARCA is not only able to create amazing technologies, but is actually engineering the future.”
With $19,900 price tag- a very high price, ARCA Space has done some fabulous work at a very base level. This hoverboard does not require any track or special surface. By the help of 36 high powered (EDF) Electric Ducted Fans that produce maximum 200 kgf (430 lbs) downwards thrust, you can fly up to six minutes. ArcaBoard has capability to carry maximum 110 kg (243 lbs) weight.
You can get back into action within 35 minutes. Recharge it with ArcaDock LiPo batteries ($ 4500.00) that can recharge ArcaBoard faster than a smartphone or tablets.
