HoverPowered Wants To Turn Balancing Hoverboard Into A Go-kart

The rather infamous and much used Hoverboard, as we all know now, does not quite hovers. It is nothing more than a miniature Segway except that it has no handlebar, but surprisingly, it has quite a following and there are even folks who step out and create accessories for it. We have seen how it can be converted to a self-propelled mobile beach chair and a ski-like electric vehicle, now another outfit wants to turn it into a go-kart. California-based HoverPowered is the startup behind the idea of the Hoverboard go-kart called HoverKart which turns a regular Hoverboard into a go-kart, complete with a swiveling third wheel, an adjustable frame, along with handlebars and slidable “race-inspired seat” to accommodate different ages and sizes.

From the Man Known for Making Crazy Stuff, Comes a Go-Kart That’s Absolutely Mental

Jet-propelled go-kart is not the newest new, but when it is born out of the hands of a bloke with a portfolio of crazy inventions like retractable Wolverine claws and jet-powered bicycle, then it turns heads and deserve our full attention. Colin Furze is a self-declared British garage inventor and is a living legend of crazy inventions. His latest creation is this Pulsejet-powered go-kart that doesn’t quite need to fire up to impress. Unlike many jet-powered examples, Jet-kart as it is called, is anything but subtle, which I am sure you have already noticed. The Pulsejet-powered consists mainly of chassis works which includes stretching the chassis by 1.5 meters long to accommodate the jet engine that sits right smack in the center, so it won’t be too near and threaten to burn the crap out of the driver who, by the way, is none other than the man himself.

Super Rare ‘Still-in-the-Box’ Porsche 936 Go-Kart Replica Uncovered, Goes on the Block on eBay

Sometime in 1984, Ferdinand Anton Ernst Porsche, or more affectionately known as Ferry Porsche, was gifted with a 1/2 scale replica of the automaker’s 1981 Le Mans winning car, the Porsche 936, which he eventually put on display in the Porsche museum. Well, this is not the exact one that Porsche had. In fact, this one is even more special and could be considered as the rarest of the rarity because it has never seen the light of the day until recent time when it was unboxed after over 30 years. This junior version was a commemorative but fully functional model produced in small batch of between 50 and 100 units (see what we meant be rarest of the rarity?) and was sold to Porsche dealers around the world. As you might have imagined, not many had laid their hands on one and even more rarer to find one that’s practically untouched 30 years on.
