Kickstarter Hoverboard Sounds Like A 'Banshee'

A $10,000 hoverboard that only works on a solid copper floor? I think I'll pass. But hey, if that's too rich for your blood, the company sells non-functioning replicas for just $499. eek!

While "completely safe," it’s far from silent. Where the white box sounded like a loud desktop computer, the sound coming out of the hoverboard prototype is like a high-pitched screech. This will be dampened by the time the company has a more polished version of the hoverboard ready by this time next year, Henderson promises, but for now it’s a cacophony of squeals when you get on. The word "Banshee" comes to mind.
