Speculation is rife over how the flying vehicle may be powered, although some have suggested that fusion research in nearby Silicon Valley startups may be behind the stunt.

Local police have been called to the scene in response to reports that an experimental hoverboard being promoted by car company Lexus was stolen during a fracas by one of the occupants of the flying vehicle.
