Arcaboard – The Next Generation Hoverboard

I love Tech. I love gadgets and there are things I cannot live without.

But this…well is beyond amazing and I sooo want to test it!!

So last year we had the Balance boards, a type of Segway but designed to be commanded with your feet movement. Everything was great until “someone” started spreading rumors and rubbish companies tried to manufacture an awful and really dangerous type of Balance Boards… The fault here is not of those who bought them, was the ones that made them and those that let them in the country.

So you now have a ban on the Balance Boards, you bought them aaaaand you can’t use it anywhere basically. You can only use it in places without people and in your own backyard.

Reading my tech news daily… I found (sound the angelic music) the ARCABOARD!

The Arcaboard by Arca Space Corp., is THE Experience what you’ve always dreamed of.

Ride across any terrain or water with the vehicle that was virtually impossible, until today. Do what you want, whenever you want, wherever you want. Each time you ride the ArcaBoard you will find yourself at the center of a new exhilarating experience.

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.

The ArcaBoard is a machine lifted by 36 high power electric ducted fans with a maximum thrust of 200 kgf (430 lbs). It has a built-in stabilization unit, meaning that ArcaBoard is stable in any condition and is a very safe platform to fly on. You will be able to utilize your phone for control and navigation of the vehicle itself. But for the most intense experience you can turn off the stabilization system and steer the ArcaBoard with your body.

Excellence in simplicity. Designing a shape for a revolutionary vehicle is no simple task. After thousands of hours creating and testing different structures, we came to the conclusion that a shape so simple, yet so powerful, is the answer to our quest for perfection. A shape that can provide stability, durability and safely contain the tremendous power within.

A huge amount of power inside.
How do you put 272 horsepower inside a vehicle slightly larger than a skateboard? The answer is with very great care. The Electric Ducted Fans (EDF), together with the controllers and the batteries, they occupy 90 percent of the space inside the board. This generates a significant amount of heat that is dissipated using a high performance cooling system. By using 36 power fans we ensure that even in the case of multiple motor failures there are enough motors remaining to take over so you keep on riding.

What do you think? I want one!!
