Last month Mattel showed us their incredible looking replica hoverboard from Back to the Future II. As cool as that is, it still doesn't really hover. Today we bring you a custom made hoverboard that actually hovers! So we are now one step closer to making the world a better place. The board was created by YouTube user dondula7 who explained..
This is a display I put together using my prop hoverboard and an electromagnetic kit with laser stabilization technology. Its still a work in progress and a better display will be built to hide the electronics. The board can support up to 5 pounds in weight, so items can be placed on top of the board and still hover. This idea was inspired by Nils Guadagnin after seeing his instillation piece.
We're almost to the year 2015. We've got to have working hoverboards by then, otherwise future movie technology would have failed us. Check out the video, and let us know what you think! I can't wait for the day to actually see video of someone riding on a hoverboard. It's only a matter of time.
