And not a transit answer. But yahoos with money would probably want one.
Right. Seems like a very cool niche machine at this point. I expect the other reason why they show it over a lake is because it would appeal to the same people who spend thousands (10s of thousands?) of dollars on recreational boating. If I could buy one of these for, say, twice the cost of a jet ski (and I were in the market for a jet ski), I would probably buy one.
There are significant recreational/tourism markets for this sort of thing. It would be very fun to explore national parks and natural wonders in one of these (with a flock of friends). Sure it would suck for everyone else having to put up with the noise pollution and visual clutter, but that doesn't mean it wouldn't be a cool experience for the rider.
If I win the lottery, I'll buy one of these, and a ranch or lake where I can play with it.
Apropos of nothing, looks like the election in France is down to Le Pen and Macron. Could French Socialism finally be on the way out?
I had a conversation with Melgross here once in which I argued the EU would eventually collapse. Turns out I may be right, even though the order of countries leaving I got wrong. I was sure Germany would be among the first to go.

Would have been smart 4 years ago.
