Yup this is REAL and just in time for 2015...!!
The company, Hendo put the innovative product and technology on Kickstarter. Learn more and check out the campaign video below:
Yes, we wrote about hover boards before, turns out someone actually made it a reality and moving it toward public market...
The magic behind the overboard lies in its four disc-shaped hover engines. These create a special magnetic field which literally pushes against itself, generating the lift which levitates our board off the ground.
While our overboard is primarily intended to be set-propelled, the actions which stabilize it can also be used to drive it forward by altering the projected force on the surface below.
Currently, the surface needs to be a non-ferromagnetic conductor. Right now we use commonly available metals in a simple sheets, but we are working on new compounds and new configurations to maximize our technology and minimize costs.
Best thing about it is that it will be available on October 21, 2015 (the same year Marty McFly arrives in the future in Back to the Future II). On the downside, getting one will set you back $10,000.
