Times Square Hoverboard Rider Revealed, Built Board By Hand
“It’s everybody’s childhood dream to fly.”
This is according to 28-year-old engineer Hunter Kowald, who has outed himself as the hoverboard rider, and creator, who flew through Times Square in footage that quickly went viral.
Kowald told the New York Post he had designed “the world’s most powerful and solid hoverboard aircraft”, and, better yet, designed the entire thing by hand.
“It contains about as much power as eight to 10 average houses all at the same time,” he said.
“The aircraft is designed to be extremely safe; I can have two rotors fail and still land safely.”
Kowald clearly breached Manhattan’s airspace laws, which, since 9/11, are some of the strictest in the world.
“We are aware of the video and are looking into it,” the NYPD told the Post when they contacted them for comment.
