It's not just steerable, without dynamic control over center of gravity, I don't think they'd be usable at all. Except maybe as novelty slam-you-into-a-wall-then-ground boot.

Plastic flying carpet is kept afloat by ripple power

Rather than a magic lamp (or one’s imagination) this flying carpet is kept afloat using ripple power, something similar to how a skate or ray travels through the water. As a movement system the flying carpet design is interesting because it has no moving parts, which makes it ideal for use in adverse environments. Right now the flying carpet is simply a prototype that is just four inches across.

The carpet is made of a piece of thin, conductive plastic that is tethered to the power source using wires. Because of the small size of the plastic sheet and the early stage of the prototype, it can’t yet support its own power source. While “flying carpet” is a handy way to describe the project, the sheet doesn’t actually fly. The problem now, based on early reports, is that of propulsion and lift. Traveling Wave paper, via BBC.
