While it's not quite as simple (or cool) as a real Hoverboard, the Air Board ($14,000) is actually available. This gasoline-powered personal hovercraft features a 1.3 gallon capacity for up to one hour of riding time, a top speed of around 15 mph, the ability to run over concrete, asphalt, grass, or shallow wet areas, aluminum, an aluminum frame with fiberglass, a high-impact plastic shell, and rubber surround, and skateboard-style steering. Beware Florida residents: you'll have to pony up sales tax if you want an Air Board to call your own.
Boasting one of the highest price tags of any item ever featured on Uncrate, the Excelsior Dawes Hovercraft ($65 million) is also one of the most hardcore. This 179-foot, military-grade hovercraft was designed for landing troops and transports on enemy shores, boasting two stabilized multiple rocket launchers, four portable air defense missile systems, enough room to hold three tanks and 140 troops, complete with living quarters, life support, and nuclear, biological, and chemical protection areas, and a square-shaped pontoon structure for a rugged, stable platform at sea. For those of you not planning a hostile attack on Richard Branson's private island, the Seal Hovercraft ($12,000) is a more sensible option, with a 14-foot length, 2-3 person capacity, and no lethal weapons to worry about.

Put a championship-winning ride in your garage with the Suzuki QuadRacer R450 Limited Edition ($8,200). Recently ridden to the 2008 AMA Pro ATV Championship, the QuadRacer R450 packs a motocross-tested, fuel-injected 450cc four-stroke engine, a new piston oil cooling jet to keep the engine cool and performance at its maximum, a new aluminum rear sub-frame, a more streamlined fuel tank, and a more responsive rear brake pedal, plus a stunning new black livery with black wheels that helps it stand out from the rest of ATV pack.
Can't decide between a dirt bike or street bike? Get both in the Honda XR650L Dual Sport Bike (starts at $6,500). It packs a Baja-bred, 644cc single-cylinder four-stroke engine, Pro-Link rear suspension, a push-button electric starter with a choke to help in cold weather, front and rear disc brakes, and more, plus a classic Honda red paint job that looks just as good on a dirt path as it does in the city.

Soar through the air and navigate the seas aboard the Antilles Seaplanes G-21 Super Goose ($TBA). A remake of the legendary Grumman Goose that ferried the likes of Hemingway and MacArthur in a long-ago era, the new Super Goose was built using the original Goose's FAA type certificates, engineer's drawings and blueprints, melding classic construction with modern technologies. Whether you're island-hopping or making your way to your favorite isolated fishing hole, the Super Goose will get you there like nothing else.
