Ever since the Hoverboard appeared on screen in Back to the Future Part II, kids around the world have wanted one! I remember when I first saw the movie I thought it was a real thing. Unfortunately, it wasn't. It was all just moviemaking magic. That magic continues in a fun video promoting the "real" Hoverboard. Back to the Future star Christopher Lloyd introduces the board and pro skater Tony Hawk and several other celebrities try it out. 

The video comes from a company which claims to have made one, called HUVr. The company's website says “Our team consists of materials science, electricity & magnetism experts who’ve solved an important part of one of science’s mysteries: the key to antigravity.” 

If I created an antigravity device, I know the first thing I would do is build a Hoverboard! I just want to make sure you understand that this isn't real, because, hilariously, some people think it is. Thanks to /Film for the heads up on the video.
