Mann mit elektronischen Rollschuhen fährt in einen Supermarkt und klaut einen Wagen voller Waren

In Winter Haven, Florida, kam dieser Herr auf elektronischen Rollschuhen, sogenannten „Hovershoes“, direkt in einen Walmart gefahren, lud seinen Wagen mit einem Fernseher, Blumen und anderen Waren voll und glitt fix wieder aus der Tür – ohne zu bezahlen. Wie Marty McFly sieht er nicht aus.

McFly He's Not – But His Shoes Just Might Help ID Him

Back to the Future's McFly he's not! But his Hover Shoes, Voyagers, Moto Kicks, Space Shoes or whatever you want to call them makes him our first futuristic thief!
Our Winter Haven McFly entered Walmart (355 Cypress Gardens Blvd) utilizing his fancy footwear and proceeds to travel all around with great ease hovering to and fro gathering items that included a television and a bouquet of flowers (wonder who the lucky girl is).
Do you think he stopped to pay? Well, as you see in the video, he glides right out without even an attempt to utilize any register. (At some point, don't ya feel the need to squeal "WEEEEEEEEE"?)
We poke fun, but stealing IS a crime and we want to get this guy and his shoes in custody.
Somebody will recognize him. Call Detective Cobb at 863-401-2256. Callers wishing to remain anonymous should call Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477). Callers are guaranteed anonymity and could be eligible for a CASH reward.

Ein Delorean Hovercraft auf eBay

Auf Ebay gibt es gerade einen funktionstauglichen Delorean Hovercraft. Die Kiste soll für 45.000 Dollar über den virtuellen Warentisch gehen. 10% des Verkaufs gehen an die The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinsons Research.

What you get:
1. Hand-built Hovercraft sculpted to look exactly like a Delorean. This is a functional work of art, it is not a Delorean bolted onto a hovercraft. There’s only one in the world!

2. Custom flatbed tilting trailer built specifically for this hovercraft

3. Miscellaneous spare parts and supplies including spare engine parts, fans and propellers, nuts and bolts.

4. Free phone consultations with me for any technical questions you might have…

The Hovercraft is based on the blueprints for the Universal Hovercraft UH-13PT. The basic shape of the hull, skirt, and fan ducts come from those blueprints, but pretty much everything else is customized. The Delorean body is made out of styrofoam wrapped in fiberglass and painted with metallic paint. The 36” thrust fan is powered by a 23hp Briggs & Stratton Vanguard riding lawnmower-style engine. The 24” lift fan is powered by a B&S 875 Professional series push mower engine. The hull of the craft hovers about 6-8 inches over the surface, and can hover over anything relatively flat: land, water, ice, snow, sand, asphalt, etc. The top speed with the current thrust configuration is 31 mph on the water in good conditions.

Ein Hovercraft-Skateboard aus Laubbläsern zum Selberbauen

Ähnliches ging zu Beginn des Jahres schonmal rum, entpuppte sich später allerdings nur als Scherz. Ryan Craven alias Mr. Hoverboard hatte sich das vielleicht zum Anlass genommen, so ein Ding dann tatsächlich mal zu bauen. Erste Testschwebungen wurden Ende November auf einer Skateanlage in Austin, Texas, durchgeführt. Und ja, sieht aus, als würde das funktionieren. Aber der Lärm, alter. Der Lärm!
