Arca Space Corp unveils real hoverboard – ‘ArcaBoard’

Arca Space Corporation has launched an actual hoverboard called ‘ArcaBoard,’ which is a mattress-sized flying machine that gives riders the ability to surf on the thrust of 36 high-speed docket fans.

The fans, spinning at 45,000 rotations a minute, enable the ArcaBoard to ascend vertically up the ground. As a result of the thrust of the fans, the board can hover up to one foot off the air, bearing a weight of up to 243 pounds. When the board’s stabilization system is turned off, riders can steer it by leaning with their body to gently tilt it up to 2 degrees.

The ArcaBoard can give the riders a nearly six-minute riding experience, after which it requires a recharge for 35 minutes.

The ArcaBoard is powered by a lithium ion battery, which is similar to the batteries that power the other so-called hoverboards -- the two-wheeled vehicles that travel on the ground. However, the battery used in the ArcaBoard comprises the same type of high-quality lithium polymer units which are used in its suborbital vehicles. As such, ArcaBoard’s battery comes with little risk of fire or explosion.

The ArcaBoard is a real, honest hoverboard which actually ‘hovers’ in mid-air. Since it is made of expensive, space travel-quality components, it comes with a whopping price-tag of $20,000. The board is now available for purchase.
