After 25 Years Of Receiving Our Letters, Science Finally Makes A Functioning Hoverboard
For many Back to the Future fans, this coming January will mark the winter of your discontent. That's because 2015 was the year depicted in the trilogy's second installment, whereby Marty and Doc travel 30 years forward in time to a world where the Cubs win the World Series, sneakers tie themselves and skateboards hover. Lies.
...or are they?
[NY Times] It hovers about an inch above the ground. But when the 190-pound visitor stood atop the 100-pound board, one gentle push was enough to send him spinning across the room over a cushion of air.
Ok, so you're not exactly going to be skitching this thing down main street away from Biff's cronies, or riding it over water, sidewalks, or anything other than a copper half-pipe in northern California, but you will technically be hovering on a board. Lower your standards, dude.
