Looking for a new mode of transportation but feeling like you're running out of options? Looking for what you can get me for Christmas?
Look no further! Behold the VertiPod!
According to the ad copy at the link, the AirBuoyant VertiPod is a "prototype multi-copter" that can be flown manned or by remote. If it's all the same to you, I'm going to just fly it on my own. No need for outside control. Not that I'm paranoid or nothin'.
While its quadcopter setup is nowhere near as elegant as say, a jetpack...it has its obvious positives. If your daily commute is one of sitting in bumper to bumper traffic and your inner voice is screaming "humans were not mean to live this way!" then this might be what allows you to soar above all of those traps of postmodern living. And I can zoom around campus, hovering outside windows and flying by at high speed with a hearty cry of "Hey-ho fuckers! Beware he who is both prolix with pen and possessed of a quadcopter!"
Plus, there's just something...comic-booky about it. You laughed at the Segway? Well you shan't do so with its aerial equivalent!
