Following in the enormous footsteps of aviating forebears like Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart and Louis Blériot, a French inventor named Franky Zapata has become the first person to cross the English channel … by hoverboard. He completed the 22-mile journey in 20 minutes atop a custom hoverboard and carrying a backpack full of fuel. [NPR]

I’m having visions of hoverboards plowing above NYC during rush hour. The Department of Transportation will have to create lanes for them, sort of like bike lanes.

Or not.
