Developed by researchers at Kobe Gakiun University, this levitating chair is meant for the elderly, but you would be hard-pressed to find any person, regardless of age, who does not want to cruise around in one of these gravity-defying chariots.

The levitating chair is equipped with jets that allow it to float (think table hockey) and, considering that it isn't fictional, is much cooler than Michael J. Fox's skateboard in 'Back to the Future'--then, now and in the future.
