This Week’s Must-Haves: a Hoverboard That Actually Hovers

This week, the Adweek staff is highlighting an emoji pendant, a smartphone-controlled hoverboard and a chic scarf. Take a look! 


ArcaBoard $19,900

With all of those hands-free scooters claiming to be "hoverboards" (when they're not busy spontaneously combusting, that is), it's not hard to understand why the Arca Space Corporation isn't rushing to claim that title for its own brand-new levitating device. But that's exactly what the ArcaBoard is: the first commercially available hoverboard on the market. The board—which looks like a cross between a Lego and a flying mattress—is powered by 36 electric ducted fans with a maximum thrust of 430 pounds and is capable of lifting its rider a foot off the ground for up to six minutes. Featuring a built-in stabilization unit, it can be controlled by smartphone or manually by the rider—just tilt it in the desired direction and you're off. The nearly $20,000 price tag could admittedly cause some sticker shock, but hey, it's a real-life hoverboard!

Dries Van Noten Frankie Scarf $390

For the sartorially inclined male, this Dries Van Noten scarf is a chic way of fending off late-winter chill. The lip print, a frequent motif in the designer's spring 2016 runway presentation, was inspired by an iconic January 1950 Vogue cover—showing only the model's eye, lips and a beauty mark­­—shot by photographer Erwin Blumenfeld.

Bamboo Spark $159

While iPads are great for storing ideas, sometimes you need to put pen to paper to express those ideas in the first place. Now you can connect the analog and the digital with the Bamboo Spark, a system that includes a digitally connected ink pen and folio that lets you record notes and sketches on a pad of standard A5 paper, then transmits your writing to a smartphone or tablet with the push of a button. The Spark can hold up to 100 pages even when offline and boasts a battery life of eight hours.

Mira Bracelet $169

In just a couple of short years, fitness bracelets have evolved from bulky rubber eyesores to jewelry that actually looks like, well, jewelry. The Mira Fit bracelet is one of the prettiest yet, offering five different metal finishes, from rose gold to shiny jet, and three sizes for a custom fit. The bracelet's removable "opal" tracks all the basic fitness metrics, then uses the data to offer personalized health tips via the My Mira Fit app.
