Too easy. ;D

Just use a magnetic board cooled with liquid Helium, and tracks/arenas covered in magnets. Ta-daa! Instant levitation. ;)

HOVERBOARD - NILS GUADAGNIN




all you need is two counter rotating RC motors -> you have bicopter (quadcopter) above.

I think they have already experimented flying a HUGE quadcopter with rider onboard.

They want me to trust my life to a flying machine that's controlled by an iPhone? Yikes...!

Haltek Industries? Isn't Mattel supposed to make these? ^-^
<fellbuendel> it's arduino, you're not supposed to know anything about what you're doing
<fellbuendel> if you knew, you wouldn't be using it
