Just like the kid from Back to the Future, we will soon be able to ride hoverboards on the streets! The Hendo Hoverboard ($10,000) could be such a recreational device. It’s a board with 4 built in hover engines, that gives you a lift of 1 inch with perfect stability.
This thing seems to respond smoothly to your body movements providing a more fluid ride than anything on wheels. For now, the mechanization is based on magnets, so the hooverboard can be used only over a metal surface. However, the tech is advancing and The Hendo Hover will likely be ready for other surfaces as well. Soon, we hope! via
