the Segway is not the only gee- whiz transportation device on the horizon. The January edition of the Hammacher Schlemmer catalog will feature the Airboard, a personal "hovering scooter" that might be a little closer to what alternative travel futurists want. In fact, it looks less like a scooter than a miniature flying saucer with handlebars... Unlike the Segway, which will be marketed as a utilitarian means of transportation, the Airboard has a bit of skateboard in its genes.
