Hoversurf Hoverbike

Hold on to your hats, people, because a Russian startup just built a hoverbike. Well, kind of. The Scorpion-3 (S-3) platform is a “single-seat aircraft that rediscovers the art of flying and hovering, enabling a hi-tech quadcopter-based solution.” Is it a hoverbike? Is it a drone car? Is it a drone taxi? Is it a cargo drone? Honestly, we have no idea. We’re inclined to say it’s all of those things, but until someone lets us ride / pilot / enjoy one (we’ll sign the waiver without reading it!), it’s kind of difficult to pinpoint the exact niche that the Scorpion platform occupies. Based on the video and some details from the manufacturer, we know it can travel up to roughly thirty miles with a payload of up to 265lbs with special safety systems powered by state of the art flight controllers. But whether you’re controlling it remotely to deliver your packages or flying it yourself, one thing’s for sure—this is one helluva cool ride that we really, really want.

The coat rack is a necessary part of any entryway, but the functionality can get bogged down in all the coats, hats, scarves and bags that inevitably get stacked on each of the rungs or hooks. You won’t have that problem with The Switchboard coat rack. The 30″ long triangular rack includes 25 triangular wood hooks that rest against the wall until you fold them down to hold each of your daily items you don’t need for the moment. Made from beech wood, Switchboard is as stylish as it is functional.
