A Golf Cart Hovercraft?

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, September 3, 2013

Want to get noticed on the golf course?  Try riding on a Golf Cart Hovercraft.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.  Pro Golfer Bubba Watson is among those behind it and the Golf Cart Hovercraft has now arrived at the unique gadget retailer Hammacher Schlemmer.  Director of Merchandising Stephen Farrell…

“Obviously the idea was it would be particularly neat to have a product that would go over water hazards or you know, sometimes on a golf course there could be other types of rough terrain, including sand traps etcetera, that allows you to move across the course as fast as you want.  This thing also goes much faster, up to 25 miles an hour, than a standard golf cart.”

It seats 4…with room for 2 bags of clubs and can be yours….for only 58 thousand dollars.   Hammacher Schlemmer has lots of other cool stuff that is a bit more affordable.   We’ve been impressed by a new handheld digital microscope slash camera that can digitally magnify up to 500 times.  It’s priced at about 200 dollars.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
