We're cursed: Every year we learn of the best summer products just when the weather is turning. (Unless we're in San Francisco, where summer and winter are interchangeable all year long.)
This year we learned belatedly of the perfect MP3 cooler to go with our MP3 barbecue. Now we get word of the "Hov Pod," a personal hovercraft that can reach speeds of 45 miles per hour. Actually, according to BornRich, this gem can be used in all four seasons, able to "smoothly navigate across all sorts of terrain including water, mud, sand, snow, ice or any other flat surface."
Somehow, though, we can't exactly see using one of these alongside the kids' sleds on the first snow day. But at a price of $26,871, it's all moot anyway.
