'Green Goblin' Hovering Over TImes Square Wows the Internet

If you're not a tourist, you probably know by now that going to Times Square is a painful experience. While it's definitely not boring, it's crawling with characters. You've got hawkers, people in costumes, the Naked Cowboy, and, of course, tourists who don't know how to walk. It seems that one brave and technologically inclined New Yorker has come up with a clever solution to avoiding the latter - using a hoverboard to rise above the hubbub. 

Twitter user Rex Chapman shared footage of this magical mode of transportation yesterday, and the video quickly went viral. Not because of the technology, but because the mystery rider looks an awful lot like Green Goblin, a well-known villain from the Spider-Man universe. Despite the millions of views, the wannabe villain's identity is still unknown. Which is a shame, because we'd like to thank them for a) making Time Square cool for about 10 seconds, and B) proving that NYC really is back. Here's hoping we get another sighting.

As a modern day, technologically enlightened society it's fair to say we're in the throes of day-to-day, life-changing breakthroughs. Seriously. We're a few leaps away from having iPhones that pretty much 'do' our lives for us, and Google's fast at work on a vaguely terrifying, though heart-stoppin' impressive humanoid robot that'll likely lead the Robo-Revolution to overthrow the human race in like a decade or something.


So, unless you just poked your head out from underneath a rock, you're probably aware drones are very much a part of our lives--one might go so far as to say a staple of any government with the resources to snag a few. Well, pizza lovers rejoice because this ingenious viral marketing video might yet inspire a totally sane and reasonable use for drones--pizza delivery! Granted, jobs would be lost; but hey at least every time you went to order up a cheesy grease wheel from the nearest available drone you'd pretty much be in Minority Report.
