Gawking stares and curious whispers accompanied me as I sailed
down the sidewalk on top of ZAP's AirBoard. As the motor of the
personal hovercraft blasted an intense jet of air below me, I
felt like I was arriving from another planet. And judging from
the reactions of onlookers, I might as well have been. Watch
'Fresh Gear' this week to see the AirBoard in action.

A cushion of air trapped underneath the UFO-like body suspends
the AirBoard three to four inches off the ground. Running off a
gas-powered lawn mower engine, the AirBoard can reach speeds up
to 15 mph and carry up to 220 pounds. On one full tank of gas
(1.3 gallons), AirBoard's maker claims an operating time of
about one hour.
